What is this project all about?

With the Help of Art and scientific Texts we'd like to raise Awareness. Our aim is to push an open Dialogue about Mental Health in a beautiful way.

We feel it is important to create an inspiring plattform about severe Disorders and to fight for more Courage and Openness.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

We speak to all people in touch with Schizophrenia and Psychosis, or those who suffer from it. Basically there are so many people involved with these matters or know someone who is. But it is still hard to talk openly about it.

Why would you support this project?

We want to offer you an open Dialogue through our personal Story, Art and Science and Letters from other concerned People.
You help us to print an inspiring Book filled with exciting Texts and beautiful Art.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

With your financial support we are able to print the very first Edition of "Seeing Her Ghosts" via Selfpublishing. If we reach our Funding Goal we print 500 copies of "Seeing Her Ghosts" and spread it even more. Additionally we want to work on a exhibition to show all the stunning Works made by wonderful People.

Who are the people behind the project?

You are supporting a family project. And of course the work of many different Artists who are on fire for "Seeing Her Ghosts". My name is Kirsten Becken and together with my mother Angela Becken I work on "Seeing Her Ghosts".

Some of the amazing Artists we work with: Faye Moorhouse, Clementine de Chabaneix, Ricardo Cavolo, Roger Ballen, Angela Deane, Helena Perez Garcia, Johanna Dumet, Eleni Kalorkoti ...
Writers: Dayna Gross, Will Hall, Professor Paul Fletcher, Stefanie Lohaus (MISSY Magazin), Rabea Edel, Mirna Funk, Andrea Hanna Huenniger ...
