About the event

By taking as focal point the refugee and migrant crisis in the Mediterranean, we will explore the complexities of curating a photography or art exhibition on another person’s suffering. What are the ethical ramifications one should consider in this context and to what extent do these differ depending on the nature of the works presented or the context of display? Following a presentation, the participants will engage through a hands-on workshop with these curatorial and ethical questions.
