Sigmund Freud Park Installation

The 28 December of 2012 the refugees who had marched all the way from the Traiskirchen detention center and had occupied the Sigmund Freud park for over a month, were evicted by the government and all their tents and belonging destroyed. In the frame of Wienwoche, the Re-emphasis project took over a billboard to bring the story of the refugee movement in Vienna in the same place it had started, the Sigmund Freud park. The billboard displays a vocabulary of icons made to denounce and demand, as well as a poem that having been created by the refugees, told the story of their struggle. Re-emphasis also organized a transnational forum for refugee activists from Europe to network closer together, to exchange knowledge and bring their concerns to broader parts of the Austrian public.
