Quand les Murs Tombent

Translation/Interpretation/Caption Text: 

French translation:

The temptation of the wall is nothing new. Every time a culture has failed to think of another, or think of joining another, or think of the other within itself, these stiff constructions of stones, iron, barbed wires or deaf ideologies have sprung up, then collapsed, to reappear again with a new painful intensity.

Édouard Glissant and Patrick Chamoiseau
Quant Les Murs Tombent (Galaade, 2007)
