In 1.432.327 m2, from the testimonials of people that have been detained in Detention Centres for Foreigners, the artist describes these detention spaces to which she can’t gain access due to her European citizenship.

The title, 1.432.327 m2 is an estimation of the total area that this legal loophole -“state of exception” that these detention centres mean- occupies in the European Union.
