Arriving: Objects & Discoveries
14 November, 2019, 10:00 am - 22 November, 2019, 4:30 pm
Arriving at a new place is a core aspect of migration, but stories of arrival are not limited to the migration experience and we all have stories of arrival (e.g. school, workplace, new home) to tell. This exhibition documents younger and older people who define themselves as migrants, non-migrants or global citizens. Together they discover the secrets behind a special object that the other one holds. The objects unlock stories about arriving at a new place and create bonds between people of different ages, biographies and migration backgrounds. The exhibition presents powerful photographic portraits of each pair holding their objects and audio-recordings of their exchanges. You are invited to tell your own story of arriving at a new place via postcards, recordings or dialogues with other visitors.
