The Martin Luther King quote "we may have all come in on different ships, but we're in the same boat now" is the inspiration for artist Sarah van Sonsbeeck's intervention in the Oude Kerk, Amsterdam's oldest surviving building. Here, amid the final resting place of Holland's naval heroes, she uses emergency blankets and other unconventional materials to ponder the topical issue of migration. (www.oudekerk.nl).
