Lost and found through the migrant experience

This event will explore how objects, such as photo albums and personal artefacts, can evoke complex stories of displacement. In conversation with Argun Imamzade, Eithne Nightingale, researcher and filmmaker, will discuss Life is a destiny, about how 13 year old Argun saved his family photograph album during the 1964 Cypriot conflict. Photographer and activist Gideon Mendel will also discuss Dzhangal, a powerful exhibition using objects gathered during visits to the ‘Jungle’ refugee camp in Calais. There will also be a chance to explore the use of images and social media by migrants on the move today.
