3.6000000 followers she's a star poetry volumes the bestsellers with millions of copies sold making her possibly the most successful poet of the present day since her ascent publishers have been desperately searching for the next big thing i did use of my cheap human poet to rival her success sales of english language poetry up 50 percent and female readers and writers under 30 at the reason why. it's not just english kareena munich germany is another insta poet is not afraid to publish the most intimate feelings on the web. or to the net so i think it's lovely when people tell me that my text helped them through a rough time. makes me so happy that this is for me it's actually kind of surreal when my writing can do that it takes the words was also. writers like kareena eckel don't need the critics approval to be rewarded with lines as long as they work

clicks with readers online or off i don't need to get a good review feel bad once. a day is a pakistani video artist based here in berlin and currently has a retrospective of martin. and here she is in one of her video installations reading the news a pakistani news reader and then as an indian news reader the news is the same but with a different slant of course an indian has taken an egg from a pakistani head or a pakistani has taken an egg laid by an indian hand and this sparks international crisis. now of course there's much more. but the. divisions between
7:49 pm
pakistan and india or actually much more. well a bit autobiographical because my parents are originally from india who migrated to pakistan so it is that's why it's me on both sides of the border so it's split identities. and the politics of post national this nationalist sentiment of separating languages on one upmanship whether it's the nuclear arms or you know casual jokes or ethnic humor. it's got something we live with in south asia it is very much part of our identity now you're quite critical about pakistan i mean one example is the installation or is that your exhibition earlier today and the one you've done about these 150000. laid out for a special occasion 2 to the national and international have and then it was the last moment sort of government incompetence if you like i wondered you do have

a go at the authorities sometimes you safe passage star i mean i think it's more humor about power so it's about the address issues of power over civilians but the art world is actually very verified and exclusive for the most part so i think . writers and filmmakers and journalists are the ones who are more at risk and if there are any i think the odd word you can still do a lot of stuff and it goes unnoticed by the authorities and i think there's humor in the work which is the most important things i think people people can find themselves laughing even if they know they're being criticized let's have a look at another video this is about borders now you see that is quite a theme i mean again in the exhibition today there were these security barrier areas pictures you painted but this is. are presumed this was staged i mean this continues the 3 really or is it

a different thing no it is it is about about manipulation and about statement of pollution about spain. and if the nation and architecture and cities which creates borders between classes and people and between different ethnicities. so it carries through all the one about people going through the yellow lines is more about people waiting for visas actually now you can change berlin 8 years ago on a scholarship and decided to stay why did you stand berlin what's it about berlin what i think that's something that a lot of people who come in the day are day but in a constant program end up staying so that's a funny thing but in my case it is my ex-husband is indian and my son is has an indian passport i'm pakistani and it kind of served us and it's to be in a neutral country in a city more difficult for the 2 of you to live by one of those cities let's have a look at some still photos archie decide to see the one behind me now these were
