TIME TO MUSE is a project that we are realising as part of JR’s Inside Out Project, for which we are currently portraying refugees as well as those who help and support them.

In conjunction with the refugee project AUGEN-BLICK we have installed portraits flags of participating refugees – with closed eyes – along the Spree. The site was once (not long ago) the heavily guarded boarder between East and West, but through its gradual dissolution now constitutes a source of hope, vitality and freedom. It engenders hope that other divisions in other regions of this planet will dissolve, thus giving rise to a peaceful and just sphere for living. The closed-eye portraits intend to create awareness and encourage the observer to reflect and contemplate. At the same time the image mirrors the desire for a sense of belonging… of those who seek to finally arrive somewhere after a long, strenuous journey.

We now want to deepen and extend this project by portraying more refugees as well as including engaged helpers. The portrait posters will prospectively be installed in a public space near the Spree in early Spring.
