2015年の9月。ウイーン空港へのトランジットのために立ち寄ったウイーン西駅。次々と難民を乗せた列車が到着する中に偶然に僕は巻き込まれた。小さな子供連れのたくさんの家族、知人たちの集団が、ボランティアが用意した食事や水を飲みながら佇むその姿は、僕が家族や親戚と一緒に過ごす休日の風景とそっくりだった。大きな力に翻弄されながら、それでも移動し続ける。それは僕たちも同じだ。潜在的な難民の可能性を誰もが持っている。事実、僕自身、金髪の青年から「ウェルカム。水がどこにあるか知っているかい?大丈夫かい?」と話しかけられた。ドイツ行きの列車に殺到する人達の中に、さっきまで一緒に遊んでいた少女がいた。彼女は今どこにいるのだろう? 他者のことをどこまで想像することが出来るのだろうか。その感覚をどこまで持ち続けることが出来るのだろうか?

A young blonde said to me, “Welcome.” Last September, transiting to the airport, at Vienna’s Westbahnhof rail terminus I was suddenly caught up in the crowd transiting to Europe from the east. Side by side, we are waiting for the next train. I could not see any difference between the scene of lots of families with kids chattering, drinking, playing and eating food prepared by volunteers and my own holiday with my family. We share lives to be tossed by the huge force exceeding personal abilities. We are tiny pieces floating around in the world. A young blonde made a mistake?

Photo exhibition “TRANSIT”
at Ars Electronica Festival 2016 “RADICAL ATOMS”
Date: September 8th-12th, 2016
Venue: POSTCITY, Conference Hall

*About 60,000 flowers are being raised for the 2016 Ars Electronica Festival, where they’ll add lots of color to the big conference hall in POSTCITY. Each flower symbolizes a person who was able to spend a night in safety here since September 2015, when this decommissioned logistics facility was placed in service as a transit camp for refugees.
