Tortura e Arte Contemporânea / Torture meets modern art




Esta escultura esteve exposta no Museu de Arte Mannheim, na Alemanha. A Amnistia Internacional queria que as pessoas se confrontassem com este tipo de situações que geralmente tendem a evitar e a passar ao lado. A escultura estava legendada com o seguinte: "Isto é apenas um duplicado. O original encontra-se pendurado numa cela algures na China, Indonésia ou no Meio Oriente. Sem testemunhas. Sem esperança. Ajude-nos a impedir que isto aconteça.www.amnesty-international.de"
