German art duo Herakut is back with this lovely new mural unveiled the day before mother’s day and Displaced Thoughts an exhibition by Herakut, aptART and friends that will be presenting their experiences with so-called “displaced people“ they met in various regions of the world while realizing arts based social projects.
The mural, painted on the Heinrich-Böll Library and titled ‘If I knew the world ended tomorrow, I’d still plant an apple tree’, a sentence written across it in 20 languages and a reference to a quote by reformer Martin Luther, shows the image of a mother and her two kids from whose hairs grow tree branches and it’s part of the The One Wall Project curated by Urban Nation in Berlin.
According  to Urban Nation the mural is about “spreading the news of the possibility of freedom and intercultural conversation – repeating this sentence in many different language[s] from all over the world on [a] new kind of saints [white] dress, the color of peace.”

Displaced Thoughts opens this Saturday, May 16 and will run through May 30 at the space located on Bülowstraße 97, 10783 Berlin.
