A monument to a closed space was sent to float down the river Mura – the river constituting the national borderline between four European nations, Austria/Slovenia as well as Hungary/Croatia. The river functioned as one of the main obstacles to pass for the refugees on their way to a “better life” in the West, from 2015 and onwards.

The video captures the moment when the monument trespasses under a bridge, the bridge being a piece of border architecture where the police and military up until this day execute border controls on basis of both locality and nationality: decide who and what may and may not pass.
