 I have participated in four peace exhibitions throughout my career as an artist. These exhibitions always gave my work a new impetus. So I would like to show in the Council of Europe (Agora Building, long brown wall) my triptych “Jerusalem,” I consider it a very important work of mine. It has already been exhibited in an international peace exhibition "Women call for peace" in the Andre Shiva Gallery at the Cuny- College for Criminal Justice New York, NY, in the Museum Katzen  - American University Museum and in the Jerusalem Fund in Washington DC.

In addition I would like to distribute 21 triangles rhythmically on the long wall (3 x 7). The triangles are boxes made out of Perspex. They are in different sizes and are filled with the drawn, cut-out, stitched city maps of the three "holy" cities: Jerusalem, Istanbul and Rome. I will connect the triangles with materialized lines and wire ladders. As a third group of works, I want to hang elements from my "Mappa Mundi" together with the complex  latest work (2019) which  I call "All Borders of the World". Here all countries and continents are represented by lines made of wire and tape piled up on top of each other, forming a dense, illegible web of lines.  The map of Europe  I will hang separately. All the individual elements should interact with each other.
