After Berlin (in May), Dresden (in June) and Genève during the Human Rights Council’s 30th session and before Strasbourg, the travelling monument “Anything to Say?” arrive in Paris! Bronze statues of Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning, standing on chairs and made by the artist Davide Dormino, was exposed on the Place Georges-Pompidou from 23 to 27 September 2015.
“This is a monument to the courage of three personalities who said no to the implementation of a global surveillance and to lies, who chose to tell the truth”, the artist explains.”
The work of art is a tribute to freedom of expression and information, outside of all political polemic. Snowden, Assange and Manning: “Traitors” or “heroes” of our time? The public has to say. The exhibition is intended to be participatory, providing the public with the opportunity to express itself by getting up on the fourth chair that has been left empty.
