The developments are fast and unpredictable. Where boats arrive today, tomorrow military may prevent their landing. Where now thousands still hoping to continue their journey cross the European Community, perhaps the next deportation already lies ahead. How much longer the stranded refugees in Greece will endure their situation beneath human dignity? Does the EU justify all means to prevent the right of asylum? And what really happens in Turkey?
Again I am traveling to the borders of Europe. As with my Melilla blog I will report what I see, learn and experience there. I would love to provide an overview about my plans right now but this is not possible. Nothing is predictable at the moment.
The current politics make me feel helpless. I think this is a feeling that many of you know. I have decided, to counter this feeling of forced passivity. I need to see as much as possible with my own eyes. I will talk to those concerned. I’ll try – at least – to help locally. I will report about all this here. And from my experiences new art projects will developed. That’s my strategy to deal with my helplessness.
I want to know about it. Because to close my eyes to reality doesn’t help -thereby the intolerable will not disappear.
