Hungarian artists gave space to refugees to express their pain and hopes through drawing and writing.
A refugee girl on the special paper wall of the Eastern Railway Station sends a message to her mother. Hungarian artists gave space to those who spent the night there to express their pain and hopes through drawing and writing. They laid out sheets of paper to photograph not only the works but also the creators afterwards. The three Hungarian artists implementing the idea will later organize an exhibition of the completed works of art.
Heart-wrenching stories, shocking human destinies, and many, many refugees: three members of the initiative, photographers Gábor Kasza and Zita Merényi, and painter Zsófia Vári, told Origo about their experiences so far.
“Zsófi : On August 30, I visited the East for the first time. I arrived at dawn and noticed that waking children were wandering among the sleeping adults. I had a box of oil pastels that I gave them in their hands and they started drawing big hearts.”
