ECF’s new director, André Wilkens, introduces himself: “I am a child of Europe, and like many of us, I have my very own personal European history. I have experienced Europe, have travelled it extensively. There were problems and crises, there were detours and flaws: such is life. (...) This Europe, imperfect as it is, is the best thing we have built in the last centuries.”
Forensic Architecture, laureates of the 2018 ECF Princess Margriet Award for Culture, open their latest exhibition and public programme series on 18 October at BAK Utrecht.
The works in the exhibition investigate a variety of reclamations of social and ecological justice. Alongside existing projects, the exhibition will premier a new investigation into the role of the police in the murder of young Greek rapper Pavlos Fyssas.
Refugees have arrived in Europe, but they haven’t yet entered the public sphere. When they do, it is as characters in other people’s stories.
But all across Europe, individuals and collectives of journalists, filmmakers, cultural professionals, activists, teachers and researchers are trying to break through the power structures. Learn about the practices and methodologies of the nine organisations of #DisplacedinMedia.
