Carlien on Constant
The work and legacy of Constant is very important for the post-II World War period in art and society. The social critical role Constant is taking on, especially in the late period of his oevre, is really speaking to me. His engagement on topics off war, insurection and the human depiction of refugee perspectives are , unfortunatly, still valid and urgent. It keeps reminding us of the importance to give stories as these a stage and try to always speak up for the collective needs in society, especially for maginalized groups and those whom are overseen.
