2021年12月22日晚間，在香港大學校園豎立二十三年的恥辱柱(丹麥語：Skamstøtten；英語：Pillar of Shame；港譯：國殤之柱）連夜遭到拆毀，此舉宣示香港再也沒有公開悼念六四事件的言論及創作自由的空間。六四悼念晚會亦在香港成為被消失的集會。
針對藝術的打壓不會讓藝術消失，反而只會賦予它新的意義不斷重生。 — 知名丹麥雕塑藝術家高志活(Jens Galschiøt)

（Demolition of the Pillar of Shame, Source: HK Frontline Media）
On the evening of December 22nd, 2021, the monument; Pillar of Shame which was erected on the campus of the University of Hong Kong for 23 years, was demolished overnight, showing that Hong Kong no longer had the freedom of expression and creativity to mourn the June Fourth Massacre in public. The June Fourth vigil had also been banned in Hong Kong.
The suppression of art does not make art disappear, rather, it will only give art a new meaning and a new life. — Jens Galschiøt
Before the demolition of the Pillar of Shame in Hong Kong, Jens Galschiøt released a 3D model of the Pillar of Shame online and called on people worldwide to download, print and share it around the world. We, the New School for Democracy, responded to the call, hoping to take this opportunity to show the world that Taiwan values freedom of artistic expression and human rights.
The current situation in Hong Kong shows that the so-called "one country, two systems" is merely a process of moving towards one country, one system. We must show our determination to reject it and show our solidarity with the Hong Kongese.
The project will reconstruct the Pillar of Shame in Taiwan based on the 3D model release by Jens Galschiøt, the creator of the Pillar of Shame, using 3D printing. The project will also invite Jens Galschiøt to Taiwan to participate in the reconstruction process.
This reconstructed Pillar of Shame is not just a replica of the original, it is a completely new work. Its meaning is no longer confined to the June Fourth massacre, but also carries the blood and tears of the many struggles of Hong Kongese since 2019.
A sea apart, they break it, we build it!
- Ｇｏａｌ: We will reconstruct a 3m tall Pillar of Shame in Taiwan, and unveil it in June fourth Vigil.
- Milestone: Thanks for the support! We will reconstruct a 5m tall Pillar of Shame
- After we reconstruct the Pillar of Shame, if there are any extra funds left, we will use them for maintenance.
2022 June Fourth candlelight vigil
（June Fourth Memorial event in 2021, held by New School for Democracy）
The Vigil will be held on 4 June 2022 at 6:40pm on the Democracy Boulevard at the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. In addition to unveiling the Pillar of Shame, we will also observe a moment of silence in memory of the victims of the June 4 Massacre and show solidarity with all victims of Chinese oppression in the Vigil.
International Human Rights Art Exhibition
From 1 June to 12 June 2022, the exhibition will be held on the Democracy Boulevard and Gallery at the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall. We will exhibit feature works by several artists, including Jens Galschiøt, Badiucao and Kacey Wong.
