My friend and colleague Cecilia Parsberg, Swedish visual artist, who
went with me to Palestine and took the pictures in Jenin and made the
films I linked yesterday too, is working with an unique project, "How
to be a succesful beggar in Sweden".
A text written by her was published in the interesting magazine
Eurozine, a collaboration between small magazines in Europe,

The text and her work add another dimension to the violence we were
talking about. All these beggars rights as human beings are being
violated every day, they travel by buss or by cheap flights to sit on
the streets of the wealthy cities of Europe to be able to support
themselves and their families in Rumania or Bulgary.
They are seen as "not beings", as parias as the Homo Sacer from
Agamben Alicia quoted.

"When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth
with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you
will always long to return.
— Leonardo da Vinci
