The Danish magazine Eftertryk has published a long interview with Jeannette Ehlers about CAMP, her work ‘The Gaze’, and the processes of decolonization…
The people who work as guides in CAMP / Center for Art on Migration Politics are, or have been, forced into the asylum system. As such, people working in, with and around CAMP are constantly affected by migration politics. As an international exhibition space for art, with an objective to stimulate greater understanding between displaced people and the communities that receive them, we cannot be silent.
Since the end of October 2018, children and adults inside Deportationcenter Sjælsmark have organized a strike against the dehumanizing conditions and “motivational measures” that make up the Danish asylum system.
CAMP / Center for Art on Migration Politics stands in solidarity with all of the children and adults organizing a boycott of the school, kindergarten, cafeteria, and the duty to report to the office.
We ask for our guests, visitors, artists, affiliated activists to support and seek out more information on the ongoing strike inside Sjælsmark.
