Raimund Hoghe (DE)
Lettere amorose, 1999 - 2017
Who remembers Yaguine Koïta and Fodé Tounkara, two teenagers who died of cold on a flight from Guinea to Europe as stowaways in 1999? Raimund Hoghe does, in his deeply moving solo from the same year. He reads out the letter to “those responsible in Europe” that was found with the two refugees who lost their life. It’s as if it “was written today”, says Hoghe. He reads from political letters, witnesses of the longing for another, better life. A masterpiece of artistic empathy.
