Last friday Nobel prizes

By unknown artist – A portrait of Nadia Murad

By unknown artist – A portrait of Denis Mukwege

đź’śđź’śđź’ś The 2018 Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad for their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict.

Mukwege, a gynecologist and surgeon, has long worked to treat thousands of women and girls affected by rape and sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Murad is a Yazidi woman from the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar.

“Both laureates have made a crucial contribution to focusing attention on, and combating, such war crimes,” said Berit Reiss-Andersen, chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, as she announced the award Friday at the Norwegian Nobel Institute in Oslo.

“Denis Mukwege is the helper who has devoted his life to defending these victims. Nadia Murad is the witness who tells of the abuses perpetrated against herself and others.

“Each of them in their own way has helped to give greater visibility to wartime sexual violence, so that the perpetrators can be held accountable for their actions.”

Special Movie. Gerda Wegener, the Danish Artist and the Erotism (1886-1940)

patriciaThanks so much!   ¡Un millón de gracias, Patricia!

Dear friends and followers, I publish this unexpected post because Patricia Alvárez one member of this community has given us, a great contribution with the tip that she suggested. This is the movie:


The story:

In mid-1920s Copenhagen, portrait artist Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander) asks her husband, popular landscape artist Einar Wegener (Eddie Redmayne), to stand in for a female model who is late to come to their flat to pose for a painting she’s working on.
The act of posing as a female figure unmasks Einar’s lifelong identification as a woman, whom she has named Lili Elbe. This sets off a progression, first tentative and then irreversible, of leaving behind the identity as Einar, which she has struggled to maintain all her life.
This takes place as both Lili and Gerda relocate to Paris; Gerda’s portraits of Lili in her feminine state attract serious attention from art dealers in a way that her previous portraiture had not. It is there that Gerda tracks down art dealer Hans Axgil (Matthias Schoenaerts), a childhood friend of Lili (Hans had been the first boy who had ever kissed her as Lili).
Hans and Gerda’s mutual attraction is a challenge, as Gerda is navigating her changing relationship to Lili; but Hans’ long-time friendship with and affection for Lili cause him to be supportive of both Lili and Gerda.
