The Danish artist , created big bronze sculptures of homeless people, all in natural size.
“I create these sculptures because the biggest threat in a society is not the foreigners, but the way we welcome the foreigners,” says Jens Galschiøt and Ninna Hoegh continuous; “By using the sculptures made by Jens Galschiøt, we will make an alternative debate concerning the rights of the homeless people.”




In April 2010 Jens brought all hes sculptures at the European Parliament (Brussels) as part of campaign “Ending homelessness is possible! How can the EU effectively contribute to the fight against homelessness?”.

    I thought that an interesting idea to look at homeless people and see how to encourage people to be brought together through the richness of their spirit…Its interesting to see how rugged and how lacklustre the poor people seem through the sculptures… I feel the sorrow perfectly encapsulated in them..
