Die Würstchen der Wahrheit

(engl. The sausages of truth)

„Stelle dich dem Regen entgegen, laß die eisernen Strahlen dich durchdringen, gleite in dem Wasser, das dich fortschwemmen will, aber bleibe doch, erwarte so aufrecht die plötzlich und endlos einströmende Sonne.“ /

"Face the rain, let the iron rays pierce you, glide in the water that wants to wash you away, but still remain, so upright await the sudden and endless inflow of the sun." Franz Kafka

Inspired by the reality of Samar Badawi, Saudi Arabian activist for women's rights and her brother, Raif Badawi, blogger. Both are committed to open debate on religious and political issues in Saudi Arabia, taking on violence and condemnation from the Saudi state to do so. It is a piece that questions the relationship with people in power. It raises its voice. It is a manifesto to empower an impossible fiction.
