Why diversity matters and needs places to shine: OUSA Collective / Interview by the New New
The first episode of "Same Same bur Different" is published in Spring/Summer 2021. This year I suddenly found this interview from the New New, a berliner collective.
Irem and Filipa
(a short-part of this interview)
Would you like to show us two of your favourite illustrations and tell us about them?
Filipa: This illustration was done by Mayha, a migrant from Thailand who has been here for five years now. She illustrates light-hearted stories of being misunderstood as a migrant in Germany. We see it as important that we create space for people like us, who identify with being migrant, BPoc, and/or illustrators from the diaspora. In this space, people don’t have to justify themselves and can let go of the burden of being expected be an intense activist. This comic is called ‘Same, same. But different’ and shows how similar Germany and Thailand are, despite being completely different.
OUSA is growing up! Let see what we gonna do in this year, 2022!
