“The Heat Is On.” I love to paint powerful images. There is nothing more powerful and universal than hands. Drawing hands is a way to express words without using words.

A while back we posted some photos of a project organized by AptArt and herakut named „Colours of Resilience“. The artistic duo herakut traveled to Jordan to embark on a creative journey holding workshops with and for children in a Syrian refugee camp and painting a few walls on the way. The refugee camps in Jordan are extremely overpopulated and about 50% of the population are children, who would have no chance at activities if it weren’t for organizations like AptArt. The workshops were very well-received and offered heart a unique insight into the thoughts, fears and hopes of the kids living in total abeyance. All these very intense experiences led to a multifaceted exhibition in Frankfurt curated by herakut incorporating many further interests and talents the duo have tucked up their sleeve such as music, literature and film. This documentary on arte creative (german language) will give you a deeper look into all the details that were considered in curating the exhibition but also emphasis on the display of the „dark side of the conflict” as they put it.
