"We were making Green lights. And while we made Green lights we talked. I asked them to tell stories about the last cup of tea they had before leaving home. (…) The circle of stories began with halting incomprehension, and ended with a sudden flash of understanding. The borders, the border guards, the endless humiliation of the production of papers and narratives, the violence of waiting—all of these can be suspended in a moment of laughter, or in a random act of generous sharing.

And this is what we learned, again: freedom is like a little green light in a very dark room, that allows you to see yourself, that allows you to see other people and allows you to see the way to the door."

Shuddhabrata Sengupta, Raqs Media Collective, ‘The Light That Says Walk´, from Green light – An artistic workshop, Sternberg, 2017'
