2009 to 2011:

Ending Homelessness

A sculpture group against poverty and social exclusion

Jens Galschiot has created 13 bronze sculptures of homeless people. In co-operation with the Danish NGO Project OUTSIDE, the sculptures have been exhibited in European capitals. The campaign was carried out on the occasion of the European Year for combating poverty and social exclusion 2010.

On each sculpture a sheet is fixed telling the story of the concerned person. So far, the sculptures have been exhibited in 5 Danish cities and in 6 more European countries.

Most important was undoubtedly the exhibition at the European Parliament 2010. The sculptures made a thought-provoking background for a hearing titled ‘Ending homelessness is possible!‘
