Upcoming: New exhibition about border politics, March 4–April 16

On March 4, CAMP invites the public to the opening of its new exhibition The Dividing Line: Film and Performance About Border Control and Border Crossing.

One European government after another is tightening border controls and asylum rules to restrict the influx of refugees and migrants, making Europe the world’s most dangerous migration route and the Mediterranean the world’s most dangerous border crossing at the moment, according to IOM (International Organization for Migration).

CAMP wants with The Dividing Line to provide a lens through which to better understand the complex relations between migration and border politics. The exhibition invites 6 transnational artists, filmmakers, and activist groups to present film, video, and live performance work that bring different perspectives to the current situation.

The participants are: Castaway souls of Sjælsmark/Denmark (transnational), Chen Chieh-jen (Taiwan), David Fedele (Australia), George Kurian (India / Turkey), Welcome to Europe (transnational).

All are welcome to join the opening events on March 4 from 5–11 pm!
