no border, no nation

On 21 June 2015, a crowd of 5,000 people marched onto the German parliament in Berlin, protesting European immigration policy. Inspired by the Centre for Political Beauty's art project “The Dead Are Coming”, attendants brought flowers and self made wooden crosses and turned the lawn in front of the Reichstag into a symbolic graveyard. In the end, more than a hundred hand dug graves served to commemorate the thousands of anonymous refugees who die each year trying to cross the border into Europe.

 

The epitaph reads “borders kill” / “kill borders”.
