Sanaa Mtaani - Kunst in der Stadt

Diary excerpts

by Philipp Günther


“The city is full. Full of human flows, full of smog, full of noise.”

“Perhaps the city is so inspiring after all, because it asks so many questions.”

“On the forward run we needed two or two and a half hours. On the way back we just needed 15 minutes.”

“How shall I write about art when I don't find an access?”

“Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of independence.”

“[...] but probably I will never understand artists.”

“The checks are conspicuous again and again at a lot of spots in the city.”

“[...] tried to find a ‘Massai-market’, instead just found a mall.”
