"I think the culture today is very, very different from what it was in the '60s, and I feel lucky that I grew up at a time when I had these very strong female role models. They were strong women, but their power was very much connected to their creativity and their voice."
Also, to be frank, I am a strong believer that art is tied to the ways of the world. We are in a period of cutbacks and downsizing. So, there was also a very practical reason why I had to do it - I had to survive like everyone else in these challenging times.
