Green Light – An Artistic Workshop
Daniela Zyman & Eva Ebersberger (Eds.)
Green Light is a project initiated by artist Olafur Eliasson in collaboration with Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, Vienna. Conceived as a field of production and mutual learning, Green Light works with refugees, asylum seekers, migrants, and NGOs to fabricate an unlimited edition of fully functional lamps, which are geometric, stackable modules made from recyclable materials that are fitted with a welcoming green light. Providing fundraising and education opportunities, Green Light workshops first took place in Vienna in 2016, and have since been hosted at the Moody Center for the Arts (Houston) and the 57th Venice Biennale. The publication seeks to question and reflect on the project through testimonies, stories, and memories by the participants and founders as well as reflect on the relationship between culture and migration today. With more than twenty contributors including Atif Akin, Anas Aljajeh, Tarek Atoui, Tawab Baran, Ian Cion, Angela Dimitrakaki, and Olafur Green Light participants, among others.
