ETHNOSCAPES curated by Emilie Nilssonis is an International photo exhibition investigating issues of (social) de-territorialization, migration, and hybrid identities. With the rapidly expanding forces of globalization, borders appear to be collapsing in a whirlwind of new technologies and communication possibilities.
In some ways, we are experiencing possibilities of mobility never seen before, though, simultaneously, national bor-ders are increasingly constricted, surveillance intensified, and immigrant rights deflated. Through the diverse lens of 18 international artists, this exhibition ex-amines the ambiguity of living in constant cross-cultural transit, as well as ex-plores the contradictory regimes of (im)mobility and trans-nationality in today’s globalized World.
