First Stop, DeBalie, Netherlands (More information on this brilliant event in our next post).
The plight of atheists and apostates increasingly seems dire. Here, at one of the world’s best free thought conferences among superstar of the field. Gugenheim takes #99 red balloons on tour, in solidarity with persecuted atheists and apostates; each balloon representing an atheist who has been imprisoned, punished or killed, simply for their non beliefs. It shows the immediacy of that horror - that person has a name, a family even, and the audience symbolically, has their life in their hands.
A powerful and moving piece, #99 red balloons is set to raise money for both atheist and secular organisations alike to help fund vital activism so these people can be protected, while raising awareness of both the horrors of their imprisonment and maltreatment.
This piece will also be filmed as part of Victoria’s residency with One Law for All
