Hong Kong University demands removal of Tiananmen Square sculpture | DW News Asia

Danish artist Jens Galschiot has hired a lawyer to secure a sculpture installed at the University of Hong Kong’s campus after HKU ordered its removal last week.

The sculpture, named Pillar of Shame, was installed at the campus in 1997, the year that Hong Kong was returned to China. The 8-meter (26-foot) piece of art mourns the people killed by Chinese troops around Beijing’s Tiananmen Square in 1989.

According to the university, the removal of the sculpture, which shows 50 bodies of democracy protesters, was ordered on "legal advice" as Beijing cracks down on dissent in the former British colony.
