Women Artist-Activists

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

I have moved back home after seven months of living in the next street while my flat was being renovated. We have still got builders on the roof and in the basement of this block of flats and a noisy dirt road in front of our windows. It feels fine to be back home and to have this opportunity to evaluate how much of my stuff I actually do need in my life. Hopefully, less junk equals more space for art and new works.
