Installation: (Un)documented Migration, feat. Hostile Terrain ‘94 (1 - 13 Noveber)

  • Date: 13 November 09:00 - 22:00
  • Location: Amare 

All over the world, people migrate in search of safety or an otherwise better life. Not infrequently, this leads to agony and even death for the migrants in question, and both a variety of violence and protests in the places migrated to.

The MA Photography & Society at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague presents an installation that allows for reflection on how the contexts and conditions in which migration takes place are visible.

The installation is built around Hostile Terrain '94, a traveling exhibition built each time with collective effort, charting the, often otherwise undocumented, people who died while attempting migration from Mexico to the United States through the Arizona desert.

Other migration routes and conditions are covered in the work of British photographer Nathaniel White-Steele, and contributions by students at the Master's.

This exhibition takes place in conjunction with the Gerbrands Lecture to be delivered by Jason de Léon, initiator of Hostile Terrain '94, at Museum Volkenkunde on Nov. 3. The exhibition is made possible in part by Fund for Ethnology / Leiden University.

On view in Amare Kunstenplein from Tuesday, November 1 until Sunday, November 13.
