Time-Lapse migration aims at reframing forced mobility narratives and questioning the distortions produced by misinformation and disinformation. We use data-based evidence, sociological research and educational digital narratives to explore the long-term impact of migration on host societies.
To reframe the debate, the project brings artists’ voices to the fore, hosting digital art exhibitions on the web and in the metaverse. The exhibited artworks are made available to buy through green NFTs (Tezos) on the objkt platform.
The project is the result of the collaboration between the artist duo Varvara&Mar, who curate the exhibition, and the start-up La Tempesta, who are in charge of the concept, design and development. Want to know more about us?
Time-Lapse migration invites cultural institutions, NGOs and artistic initiatives to participate and exhibit new artistic perspectives on the themes of misinformation, disinformation and forced migration.
We explore representations of forced mobility from different perspectives to critically examine the distortions produced by misinformation and disinformation.
Data and sociology
Approaching migration narratives from a long-term perspective.
Why are borders and arrivals today permeated with fear, and how are these commonly represented?
How do migrant workers sustain everyday life among the host society? What jobs do they occupy and what are their employment conditions?
How does mobility relate to questions of identity and which ideas lie behind exclusionary narratives?
