On 20 tiles in 18 languages are the questions "Is your freedom my
freedom? Is my freedom your freedom?" engraved, running as a big circle
over the tiles. If placed all together, it would be possible to read all
the translations.

Now, due to their worldwide separation, we just see
parts of the idea and must restore the whole circle in our imagination and
through communication. The translations where obtained by questioning
people on the streets of Berlin, Germany In one week I obtained 39
translations-- in just this one week in Berlin.
