About the show

Make a Change is an exhibition where different perspectives on migration and movement of people appear. It is also a meeting place for participation in constant flux, and a place for dialogue and narration. What challenges can a temporary exhibition try to tackle in a time when 60 million people are fleeing from war, violence and terror in the world? The acute refugee crisis, the European countries' different ways of acting in a humanitarian disaster situation, the forgotten colonial background of the European Union, power and globalization - are all complicated and important topics in the background of the exhibition but not the statements of the artworks. The exhibition is about existential questions, the human condition, and about the transformative and reflective part that art can play in society. Some works draw connections between history and our time, others between the global and local. Questions about identity, home and hope blend with alienation, exclusion and survival. Make a Change is an exhibition with eleven artists from different countries and continents. There are artists living in exile and artists without countries, relocated in the interstice between places and people. There are artists with own experience of fleeing and artists that have been working with the question of migration during many years.
