REFUGEE STACKS

Refugee Stack, 2015

REFUGEE STACKS, 2015

The project REFUGEE STACKS is a reaction to and discussion with the Situation of refugee flows. For one week the artist Florian Mehnert talked to people in a refugee home and convinced them of his project REFUGEE STACK. The REFUGEE STACKS draw attention to the fact that behind every refugee there is a personal story, an individual destiny, a person with abilities and dreams. The works approach the viewer through their aesthetics, and then confront their depiction of the stacked refugees in the next step. The viewer's oscillation between the aesthetics and the confrontation with the actual image situation creates a platform for discourse and discussion of the refugee issue.
