By Olafur Eliasson, this breathtaking installation at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art of a river running through the museum is astounding. It is such a realistic, natural landscape the museum could have been dropped on top of the river itself for how pristine it looks.

America has been consistent in it’s devaluation of black life. in it’s disgusting assumption of “inherent” black criminality and inhumanity. in it’s invalidation of black citizenship. in it’s use of excessive and racist police force to contain and tightly control black life. know this. what is happening in Ferguson,Missouri isn’t new but you should be angry and aware. this is unacceptable. we can’t bear any more of this. things have to change
