    REMEMBERING FRIDA KAHLO

     

    This year marks the 60th anniversary of the death of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). She is best known in the art world for her surrealistic "selfies" or self-portraits and paintings of Mexico's culture and indigenous traditions. In 2002, she was honored by Hollywood with an Academy Award-nominated biographical film, "Frida", starring actress Salma Hayek. During the annual International Theater Festival - Berlin Lacht (Berlin Laughs) at the Alexanderplatz, I met a young woman dressed-up like Frida. I'm glad she posed for me for some photos because the resemblance is just truly awesome.
