Hong Kong University demands removal of Tiananmen Square sculpture | DW News Asia



Danish artist Jens Galschiot has hired a lawyer to secure a sculpture installed at the University of Hong Kong’s campus after HKU ordered its removal last week.

The sculpture, named Pillar of Shame, was installed at the campus in 1997, the year that Hong Kong was returned to China. The 8-meter (26-foot) piece of art mourns the people killed by Chinese troops around Beijing’s Tiananmen Square in 1989.

According to the university, the removal of the sculpture, which shows 50 bodies of democracy protesters, was ordered on “legal advice” as Beijing cracks down on dissent in the former British colony.

  2. I was born on this day, the moment it was happening. I feel deeply connected to this event and the struggle of the Chinese people. The people who fought for democracy deserve to be remembered.

  3. its more than that. its making the people work against themselves while belittling and disempowering the jailed. its yet another penis waving expedition by the government. and the tactics are those of cruel psychopaths.

  4. China is too authoritarian. In the long run it will be China's downfall. they fear nothing more than opposition/not being seen as an ideal. But by subverting opposition and criticism they give reason to oppose in the first place.
