Current Newsletter Issue
Issue 30, January 31st 2013.

It's been a while since I have issued the last newsletter. The Year is changed and is now 2013. The world as we know it has supposedly ended, if we take the Maya predictions to heart, and a new order will arise. In Israel there have been elections, and there also is no surprise.

They each have stories, personal tragedies, which teach us so many lessons in history of art and culture, of human nature and politics, of Power and freedom of expression. These stories teach us, one person at a time, about each artist's search for expression, struggle against oppression and dictate, their own personal solution to that conflict - or lack thereof...
