More than 20 years after Vanmechelen created the sculpture, the Cosmogolem project developed into a worldwide project with statues in more than 40 places. From Poland to Chili, Pakistan, Mumbai, Arusha, Zimbabwe, Belgium, the Netherlands and many more.
The eventual goal of Koen Vanmechelen, and all those involved in the project is to plant Cosmogolems all over the world and to create a chain of organisations who actively promote human rights and stand up for certain minority groups. Giving everyone a chance to dream and hope, across the borders.
The Cosmogolem never stops looking for places to lay anchor and bring hope to young people in need. Find more information below on the Cosmogolem projects.
