Play reading of court reports of asylum hearings in administration court Tiergarten, Berlin.
Since 2013 Marina Naprushkina is working on an archive containing courtroom sketches, titled Refugees’ Library. The artist hereby records the hearings conducted with refugees to determine their right to stay. The artist’s main concern is to make the archive library available to refugees as a resource of information to prepare for their own hearings. Over 20 independent translators are working on the project to make the books accessible in different languages. Members of the Initiative Neue Nachbarschaft (New Neighbourhood) / Moabit read from the transcripts in several languages.
