Oct 1, 2013 — "Situated above the door of one of Manifesta’s offices stands Tankman, 2013, a miniature statue of the man who refused to move from an oncoming tank in Tiananmen Square on 5 June 1989, known from the iconic image from those protests." Obviously Manifesta finds it easier to observe than to be active... Perhaps if a monument to the victims of abuse in Russia is built... Manifesta might show it! But let's not expect them to do anything to help! http://manifesta.org/2013/09/rooms-with-a-view/
