BLÆKHAT – INK CAP
BY GAZAN, SISSEL-JO
Rosa grows up among the hippies, street artists, BZs, and left-wing radicals in Aarhus during the 80s. She lives with her mother, who is deeply engaged in the science of mushrooms and in the fight against capitalism and less bothered by who Rosa’s biological father could be.
As an adult, Rosa studies street art and has specialized in the anonymous street artist Ink Cap, who provokes and fascinates the whole world with humorous, political art. After a failed relationship, Rosa travels in the footpath of Ink Cap and ends up in Berlin, where she is suddenly close to finding out the riddle of who she really is.
Ink cap is a moving and surprising novel about family secrets, ocean-deep friendships, and a strong love. It is also about the political extremes that will wither divide us or bind us together.
