"It's the worldview of a humanity that is fragile, disoriented and tormented that is translated by the painting of Bahram Hajou, a Syrian artist of Kurdish descent living in Germany. The worldview of a humanity prey to its own demons, and at the same time free from the forces that it does not control, and which renders it vulnerable at every moment. It's the worldview of a threatened humanity."


("Bahram Hajou: L'humanité en miroir, Miroir de l'art, no. 80, p. 18)
