Poster against xenophobia
MATRE’s picture Moth in the Light stands for change, both large and small.
She reminds us that human dignity is inviolable and that the refugees and we must shape integration together.
Next to the poster there are cards with the picture and the first article of the Basic Law on a small concrete stele to take away.
An exciting encounter took place as soon as the poster was set up. MATRE and Mr. Schmitz-Linkweiler spontaneously needed help. A refugee young man who was busy setting up the Christmas market next door helped. The picture reminded him of a boat on the sea, of difficulties and danger, but also of rescue.
The artists’ initiative “Artists against xenophobia” was founded more than 20 years ago after the arson attack in Solingen and is under the patronage of the city of Meerbusch.
For the 50th anniversary of the twinning of Meerbusch and Fouesnant, the MATRE billboard was unveiled in Fouesnant on May 26th.
The MATRE poster can be seen in the next few months on Dr.-Franz-Schütz-Platz in 40667 Meerbusch Büderich and in front of the art forum in Fouesnant.
