Art In Coexistence | Seasoned Eyes Are Beaming

Dear Artists & Readers,

The first artist I have ever worked with is Jack Savage, a multi award winning fine art photographer from London. Jack has designed the cover of my previous book and he couldn’t have done a better job! Yesterday, he’s told me some great news! Jack’s work is gonna be represented by a gallery in Berlin! I just wanted to make use of this opportunity to publicly congratulate him! (and share some art of course!)

Don’t hesitate to leave a comment below to congratulate Jack 🙂

This is the link to his website.
This is the link to his instagram.
This is the link to our book on amazon. (available worldwide)

The poetry below is the first poem I wrote for my solo publication.
I hope you like it!

Seasoned Eyes Are Beaming

If you ever live to be eighty
you went through more than
twenty nine thousand days
Your time worn body will
have changed your
self-presenting face

You might have changed
some of your fundamental convictions
over your many turbulent years
You might have developed
and eventually conquered
some very deeply rooted fears

If you ever live to be eighty
you went through more than
you have grown to imagine today
with hopefully nothing left to prove
but probably so many meaningful
words, you’ll just know how to say

You might have drowned in many nightmares
You might have been absent while daydreaming
but when you look back at your
younger years, your
Seasoned eyes are beaming

Art In Coexistence | Human Be Kind

Dear Readers,

Poetry by Jovannah Bär©

Human Be Kind
Now that we are confronted with this
worldwide, tangible devastation
Out in the open with our inequality
living in total isolation, separated
from our heart’s desires
It makes me long back to
When we all lived our lives the same
Warming up to community campfires

Now that freedom itself
is under attack, we’re confronted with
what seems to be at a lack
With what seems to be a faulty intention
Can you feel it? The imperial tension
If we want to save our civilisation
We have to save the next generation
From this immeasurable disrespect
Towards many mothers, brothers and daughters.

Lives are at stake because of numbers
Children are being disregarded
Because they are a girl
Because they are of color
Because they were born
In the “wrong” neighbourhood
What happened to sharing
Our collective success and growth?
As humankind

-Human, please be kind.

Art In Coexistence Relaunch

Dear Artists and Readers,

We are entering the 8th month and I am still so proud and surprised to see what we have accomplished these first months! Thank you so much!🥰

Now that we have a steady base I would like to focus on quality. This is why I will be relaunching Art In Coexistence, while also getting some professional help to make sure everything looks good. After this, I will apply for funding with hopes I’ll have more financial aids to promote your works and build our projects.

What will change?
– The website will be rebuilt (this means the website will be out of order for a couple of days)
– There will be a steady set of segments so you know what content to expect.
– There will be a schedule, this way you know what days I am posting.
– I will be releasing more information about our book.
– I will be releasing more information about our magazine!

If you have any requests, please comment your suggestions below 😊

Video Poetry| The Home And The Heart

“The Home And The Heart” by Art In Coexistence

Dear Artists and Readers,

I am very proud and a little nervous to show you our first spoken word video project. 🌞
I really hope you like it because I absolutely loved making it! This is a pilot to see if this concept is working. I am very aware of the fact that I need a lot of practise.

This is just one of many families migration stories. I hold a deep respect for the courageous people who manage to leave everything they know and start their lives all over again somewhere far away.🌎 Sadly, it is often precisely these people who are treated the worst. #HumanBeKind

This poem was originally a quick sketch, which I wrote during a recent visit to my grandmother.🌞Let me know what you think of this project. Let me know if you’d like to see more of these videos🙏 Oh and by the way, would you be interested in a spoken word album of Spotify? Please let me know in the comment section below.
