Global Week of Action
a campaign for fair trade
A group of ´Hunger Boys´ in copper and ´Survival of the Fattest´, a enormous fat western woman on the back of a starved African man invaded the Townhall sq. of Copenhagen in companion with Jens Galschiot´s latest sculpture ´Mad Cow Disease'. This peculiar piece of art consists of a pair of scales, 8 metres high. On one arm hangs a dead cow by its legs, on the other a number of Africans (in copper). The sculpture will point up the grotesque fact that each cow in the EU receives a subvention of 800 US dollars to block the poor countries from selling their products on the European market.
