Illegal, Temporary and Precarious States of Being - Migration
From: Monday 15 February 2010 To: Sunday 28 February 2010
“Illegal, temporary and precarious states of being - migration” highlights the contradictions in a world that relies on migrant labour but refuses to accept or appreciate the migrants who work. The last day of the exhibition coincides with the final date for migrants in Thailand to enter a process of regularization. Any migrants not doing so is threatened with arrest and deportation. This exhibit combines the work of new and experienced artists and includes photographs, video, performance, and innovative installations. The exhibition is organized by MAP Foundation (Thailand), Studio Xang (Thailand),The Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) and the University of Leeds (UK) supported by IDRC and Japan Foundation. At the Pridi Bhanomyong Institute, Sukhumwit Soi 55 (BTS Thonglor). Tel: 081-340-5409.
