I have been a part of the Study Group on Migration at Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde and encourage everybody to drop by the event.
The event will take place January the 21st, 12-5.30pm
Museum of Contemporary Art, Stændertorvet 3D, 4000 Roskilde
How does the current migration challenge the idea of the nation state, borders and questions of belonging? And how can we approach this conflicted field, overcome ’othering’ and contribute to new ways of understanding ourselves and each other. In the fall, the Museum of Contemporary Art established a Study Group on Migration. 19 people including artists, asylum seekers, activists and academics, met over 5 times to discuss this very topic. The result was an intense and ramified journey, with each person bringing her or his specific knowledge to the dialogue. Now, we would like YOU to join the conversation. On Saturday January the 21st we invite everybody to experience workshops, performances, sound art and talks engaging in the topic of migration and challenging ‘othering’ in relation to this.
