Rosa Parks fled the American South for Detroit in the 1950s at the height of her civil rights struggle. Now the house where she sought asylum has itself found refuge in a city an ocean away: Berlin. Mendoza said the modest three-bedroom home at 2672 South Deacon Street housed 17 people – her brother's family – at the time Parks lived there, between 1957 and 1959 .Enter Mendoza and his wife Fabia, who had already transposed one Detroit house to Europe as part of an art project probing themes of rootlessness and displacement.Mendoza said he used the proceeds of paintings he sold to foot the $33,000 bill to deconstruct and transport the house.Mendoza took the house apart over 18 days last August, packed it in shipping containers and gradually pieced it back together on a foundation he poured between his contemporary home and his studio.McCauley, who said she is alarmed and angered by the direction her country is taking under Trump, prefers the house stay in Berlin for a bit longer.
