‘climate refugee camp’ by hermann josef hack

the german artist hermann josef hack set out early on january 26th, to install his latest ‘climate refugee camp’ in berlin. the art installation features a series of small cardboard tent structures that are designed to look like a refugee camp. hack installed around 400 of the miniature tents in front of the german capital’s brandenburger gate. hack then dismantled the tents and moved them to a new location the next day. his mission is to make the public aware of people who have become refugees because of climate. the is the latest iteration of hack’s two year old project. hack also designed a ‘climate refugee guide berlin’, a guidebook for climate refuggfees.
