A recommendation from @neuegaleriebookstore: "Magic Realism: Art in Weimar Germany 1919-33,” edited by Matthew Gale and Katy Wan.
This elegant publication reveals a vibrant and under-explored seam of modernist painting in Germany and Austria during the Weimar era. Although “magic realism” is a term today more commonly associated with the 20th-century literature of Latin America, it was first coined in 1925 by the German art historian and critic Franz Roh to describe an emerging style of modern realist paintings with fantasy or dreamlike subjects, and is often seen as parallel to or overlapping with the New Objectivity movement.

#bookrecommendation - A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhatena. 💖
It's been a week since I read the book and I'm still not over it. Totally heartbroken and sad at the same time.
This book narrates the story of sixteen year old Zarin. A brilliant girl and a bad girl. A Girl who has been labelled so by everyone. A Girl who has voluntarily decided to be a bad girl. A Girl you should not be friends with. And this is the story of a girl Like That. And why is she like that? The author traces Zarin's story by giving her readers multiple characters' point of view about Zarin and how everything led to an uneventful day in Zarin's life. An expat from India, living in Saudi Arabia's Jeddah, Zarin knows little about her birth parents; knows little about her aunt and uncle who have adopted her reluctantly; does not know why her aunt hates her own sister, Zarin's mother, and beats her ruthlessly. With all these contempts and backlashes she faces in home, Zarin had decided to turn into a Girl Like That. A girl who smokes cigarettes and a girl who goes on dates and indulges in all those things that a girl 'should not.'
The only reason why I cannot just give this book a whole 5 star rating is because I'm still unsure where life in Saudi Arabia is as hard as it has been portrayed in the book. Quite a handful Goodreads reviews tells me that it is not as harsh as it is in the book.
This was my 2nd read for #femmemarchfest
And I recommend this to all. A detailed review is up on my blog (link in bio). 😊
PS, my father clicked this picture for me after my brother blatantly refused to do anything for me because I was irritating him. My father was so patient with me, fussing over the position of the book and he actually made sure the picture turned out perfectly. A big shout out to all the supportive fathers in the world. 💖💖💖💖
