Thus, Farhang portraits Only a second glance reveals the stirring power and frightening dangers that lie dormant in the water.

They will be also accompanied by the musician Hamza Hasan, who was born in Damascus in 1990 and has lived in Graz for several years, who will play a nai, an oriental bamboo flute.
The exhibition will close on March 8 with a focus program on International Women's Day.
