Time-lapse migration is an exhibition project where art becomes a means of reframing forced mobility narratives and questioning the distortions produced by misinformation and disinformation.
The project aims to bring forward the refugee artists' voices in order to build an alternative narrative that transcends the rhetoric of fear and the prevailing misinformation and disinformation about forced migration. Inspired by art's elementary function as a critical tool for transformation and thinking, artists have a powerful voice and can imagine and create new perspectives in a language that we all understand, thus going beyond the limits of what can be taught by modern sociology and data analysis.
Time-lapse migration fights misinformation and disinformation through...
We inform: We offer new perspectives on the sociology of migration based on research and data in order to identify the mis/disinformation distortions of the discourses of forced mobility, and regarding borders, everyday life and identity.
We curate: How can art reframe existing mis/disinformation about the phenomena of forced mobility phenomenon and replace this with new imaginaries? We curate an art exhibition that gives direct voice to migrant/refugee artists.
We design and develop: We provide a replicable platform for storytelling and exhibitions on the web and in the metaverse, allowing monetisation and based on a sustainable business model.
