"To be loved, I think, is the thing that gets you up in the morning"
"Art is dangerous, it touches you in forgotten places, it’s an incarcerated object of desire and makes the pain of existing worth it."
"I just hope that one day—preferably when we’re both blind drunk—we can talk about it."
People lay down in a pedestrian zone as part of an art project in remembrance of 528 victims of the ‘Katzbach’ Nazi concentration camp in Frankfurt, Germany. The inmates of the Katzbach concentration camp, a part of the former Adler industrial factory, were forced into a death march to the concentration camps of Buchenwald and Dachau in 1945.The 528 vicitms of Katzbach are buried at Frankfurt’s central cemetery.

"Two February’s ago, all I wanted to do was sleep. I was anchored to my bed with the sadness I was letting myself drown in. Now, I daydream about surviving on 3 hours of sleep, I dread going to bed, I keep my eyes open as long as I can. My heart sinks when the sun sets, I crave daylight; I’ve fallen in love with being alive."
