. Monument to Tiananmen Square Massacre Dismantled in Hong Kong « JO LEE MAGAZINE

ART NEWS – A sculpture made by Jens Galschiøt to memorialize the lives lost during the Tiananmen Square massacre of 1989 stood on the campus of Hong Kong University for 24 years, but yesterday it was dismantled as guards prevented journalists and students from recording its removal, reported Artnet News. The sculpture, titled The Pillar of Shame, is a 24-foot column of twisted and fused bodies. Meant to commemorate the eighth anniversary of the Tiananmen crackdown, the work was erected at the university in 1997—the same year China gained governmental control of Hong Kong.
