3:43 pm
into raptures. it's the same basic you get a strong sense of the building's two hundred seventy five history but in fact every square centimeter has changed all the materials a new idea to improving the acoustics of the stage technology has been optimized it's absolutely state of the art it's a finely tuned instrument. after tuesday's ceremonial opening the starts up or onto the linden will close again for two months it will reopen to the public. december just in time for its two hundred seventy fifth anniversary. now what. nina simone and pina bausch have in common as different as these women are they all stand for freedom that is at least the viewpoint of the polish graphic artist in the neck she creates striking and impressive portraits of women for her project
3:44 pm
titles follow women and it's getting a lot of attention from large companies because female i call in a big on the marketing scene right now. creates portraits of inspirational women. and bright follow women boy i call this project follow women's because that's what i do they come to me in unexpected ways sometimes i read a newspaper interview and think my god i have to paint her as someone posting a movie. just i'm used to some you sometimes i follow my instincts other times i research their biographies that's what i did with nina simone i listen to her music and read about her life and his daughter yeah yeah. the neck

3:46 pm
easy to market these days and big companies are looking to cash in on that but i don't feel very comfortable with the idea of making the project commercial so that the common one is good the other but the little call that. owns screen printing business so she is not under any pressure to monetize the project. wherever she goes out of the of my graphic art and the copyright that's all i have yeah this was good so it's important that i protect that absolutely.

class is theirs and that's it that's the sentence i'm going to use. in spain we have all these months now. much use words that inspired to give strength to women or galvanise them my project is seen as feminist but i see it more as a project for women there's a lot of tenderness in it. if you very strongly about the women i portray. to try to. follow women illustrations that make a statement. while always do your best if you are passionate about what you're doing for work and that statement rings true for volatile as well he was passionate about his design ideas which is why the bow house movement he created is still love today there are
