The Color Orange by Jens Galschiøt

The Color Orange - 2008

We launced the project, "The Color Orange," to highlight human rights violations in China during the Beijing Olympics in August 2008.

The concept was both sophisticated and simple:: We wanted to introduce "The Color Orange" as a symbol of protest against human rights violations in China. Despite the censorship that could ban the use of explicit iconography and symbols associated with human rights, the use of "The Color Orange" could not be banned.
