The Dividing Line: 
Film and Performance About Border Control and Border Crossing

The Dividing Line: Film and Performance About Border Control and Border Crossing is CAMP’s third exhibition in our 2-year exhibition program Migration Politics. As one European government after another is responding to the biggest refugee and irregular migrant flood ever recorded by tightening border controls and asylum and deportation policies, Europe has become the world’s most dangerous migration route and the Mediterranean sea the world’s most dangerous border crossing, according to IOM (International Organization for Migration). CAMP wants this exhibition to take a deeper look at this situation and provide a lens through which to better understand the complex interplay between human migration and border politics.

Camp Life: Artistic reflections on the politics of refugee and migrant detention

Camp Life is CAMP’s inaugural exhibition and the first exhibition in the 2-year exhibition program Migration Politics. It zooms in on the refugee camp, the asylum center, and the detention center as the nation-state’s perhaps most extreme responses to human migration. The exhibition shows projects by 9 international contemporary artists and collectives, who examine the politics of detaining refugees and migrants in exceptional spaces. In different ways, their artworks ask what kind of space the ‘camp’ is, which functions it performs, what political-juridical structures have made camps possible, and what living in a camp does to the subjectivity, body, and soul of camp residents.
