We arrived on the dark side of Europe – the tents of Idomeni


After the closure of the “Balkan route” a few months ago, thousands of people stranded at the greek / macedonian border. To overcome their speechlessness their only possibility was to write their demands on their tents, hoping this lines would be transported and read. And they have been carried on to Nickelsdorf. Transfered, displaced and out of context they reappear as a relict of european history on trembling tarpaulin.
