Santiago Sierra: “Worlds Largest Graffiti”

“Worlds Largest Graffiti” von Santiago Sierra, Smara Refugee Camp, Algerien: “In October 2012 the letters “S.O.S.” were carved into the ground of Western Sahara/Algeria near the Saharaui refugee camp Smara in collaboration with Artifariti and the Frente Polisario. The graffiti measures 5 km x 1,7 km, which makes it the largest graffiti in the world. The piece refers to the Saharaui peoples struggle for independence from Moroccan rule in the almost forgotten West Saharan conflict. For 36 years they have lived in makeshift conditions under the provisional arrangement of the refugee camps in the Sahara desert, south east of Tindouf.” Via: Mail, thx Lutz!
