The Wall (book) The Wall (French: Le Mur) by Jean-Paul Sartre, a collection of short stories published in 1939 containing the eponymous story "The Wall," is considered one of the author's greatest existentialist works of fiction.

Atelier NL › Polderceramics Polderceramics2008 | project Drawn from Clay-Noordoostpolder Artists have long explored the significance of ‘place’ – as a site of history and identity; as a dynamic process in constant flux; and as a politically charged way to both challenge and contextualise the world.

We hear the people begging for jobs and the politicians promising them, but politicians can’t create jobs. We see people camped out to buy stuff on Black Friday indicating the consumer economy is seemingly thriving, only to find out everything was bought on credit.
