“I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own. And I am not free as long as one person of Color remains chained. Nor is anyone of you.”
audre lorde (1981)

„The world says: „You have needs — satisfy them. You have as much right as the rich and the mighty. Don’t hesitate to satisfy your needs; indeed, expand your needs and demand more.“ This is the worldly doctrine of today. And they believe that this is freedom. The result for the rich is isolation and suicide, for the poor, envy and murder.“
Fyodor Dostoevsky (1879)
„Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.“
Thich Nhat Hanh (1998)
„It’s just a feeling. It’s like how do you tell somebody how it feels to be in love? How are you going to tell anybody who has not been in love how it feels to be in love? You cannot do it to save your life. You can describe things, but you can’t tell them. But you know it, when it happens. That’s what I mean by „free“. I had a couple times on stage when I really felt free, and that’s something else. That’s really something else! I’ll tell you what freedom is to me: No fear!“

A podcast on freedom.
What is freedom? Is freedom the same for me as it is for you? Can we be free if not all of us are free?
I wanted to find out more. After reading into philosophical and religious concepts of freedom I found myself getting more confused and distracted than actually gaining a clearer understanding of the word or the concept.
So I decided to ask my friends for help. I wrote to over 200 of my facebook friends and asked them to record a short voice message about freedom. 27 people responded and you will be able to listen to what they said in an upcoming podcast that will be released as part of Reflecting Europe in December.
This website is just starting
to grow into it’s existence. It’s an installation – carefully selected pieces of the past and thoughts about the future, attempts of showing reality and fiction; art.
I’m looking for ways to contribute in friendly and peaceful ways, so that, together, we can create more equality and actual freedom. If we can. Let’s at least try.
