CHANGING VISTAS OF EUROPE. Refugees' Concepts of Europe Before and After Arrival
This brochure complements the seven portraits of refugees from Asia and Africa presented in the exhibition "Changing Vistas of Europe". The portraits reveal seven very different life courses and experiences before, during and after migration, and different concepts of Europe.
While public discourses tend to present very generalized and homogenized images of "immigrants" or "refugees", the exhibition invites a consideration of the differences between the experiences and perspectives of these seven people. It will be seen that the idea of migration for economic reasons is not only oversimplified, but in most cases inaccurate.
