“Green light is an act of welcoming, addressed both to those who have fled hardship and instability in their home countries and to the residents of the cities receiving them.” —Olafur Eliasson
Green light – An artistic workshop is a project by the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, initiated in collaboration with Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, Vienna (TBA21). Conceived in response to the present challenges arising from mass displacement and migration, the project shines a green light for asylum seekers, refugees, and migrants and encourages civic engagement.
At the core of the project is a fundraising campaign, supported by donations given in exchange for Green light lamps. Become a member of the Green light community and support the work of our partnering NGOs: Emergency and Caritas.
