Imagine fleeing your country and leaving behind your family, friends and everything familiar to travel across borders and demarcation lines by foot and by sea, headed toward lands unknown. That is the reality of exile.
Over 300 images from the photojournalists of Magnum Photos tell the story of migration: walking, waiting, uncertainty, fear…and hope. Work from the agency’s historical greats – including Robert Capa, Werner Bischof and Raymond Depardon – is displayed alongside that of contemporary photographers shooting on the ground.
From the Spanish Civil War to the Vietnam War, from the conflict in the former Yugoslavia to the one in the Middle East and the arrival of refugees at Europe’s door, the exhibition plunges the visitor into a riveting documentary exploration of our world and humanity, calling into question notions of territoriality, geopolitics, economic context and mental boundaries.
Open from 10h to 17h
