Portfolio - Entre deux Tours

1/5

Summary

The presence of two quite different towers on such a restricted space, located each, respectively, at a small distance from the Belgian-Dutch border inspires this video.

In 1948, the fall of Prague brought about the birth of NATO and, indirectly, the establishment of supreme headquarter in Benelux, at Brunssum (Netherlands) in 1967 : known as AFCENT (Allied Forces Central Europe).

 

In the second century AD, Hermas, one of the lost prophets of the church of Rome predicted the construction of a tower. It came about in 1964 at Eben-Ezer.

 

Mr Garcet is not merely the builder of this tower, but also the architect of an universal, mystical and deeply pacifist school of thought :

 " Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. " (Isaiah, 2.4)

 

As for AFCENT, they took over Charlemagne's arms and motto :

 " I fight against injustice and I destroy all trace of evil.”
