First Fall of the European Wall

Campaign film for the Center for political beauty

The art installation of "white crosses" collectively left the city's government quarters to escape the commemoration festivities for the fall of the Berlin wall's 25th anniversary. In an act of solidarity, the victims fled to their brothers and sisters across the European Union's external borders, more precisely, to the future victims of the wall. Since the fall of the iron curtain, the EU's border has taken 30,000 lives.
