Where is the East?, 2016

Farbic, Sugar

Dimensions Variable

This piece presents 8 Eastern countries along with the amount of refugees accepted in each country using the sugar cubes. Each piece of
sugar amounts to 66,666 Syrian refugees. As a response to the hashtag #RefugeesWelcome that trended when the West began accepting Syrian Refugees, this piece sheds light on the lack of ‘welcome’ from the East and the neighboring countries to Syria, that should have been the first ones to aid the country when it was in crisis.
