In Borders and Belonging, my colleague Jacobia Dahm and me, work to illuminate individual stories of migration, arrival, and separation. The images direct our attention towards the capacity and necessity for humans to create homes for themselves, no matter how transitory the situation. At a time when population movements are repeatedly cast as economic and security threats, these four projects highlight the urgency of documenting the people who make up these populations.
This event is part of a Philadelphia Area Creative Collaboratives (PACC) project called ‘Who Belongs? Exodus and Arrival.’ This collaborative group consists of artist Jacobia Dahm; Alexandra Wolkoff, Director of Education, Puentes De Salud; Imke Brust, Assistant Professor of German, VCAM Faculty Fellow (2018-19), Haverford College; Brust’s course, ‘Visualizing the United States of Europe;’ Zainab Saleh, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Haverford College; Saleh’s course, ‘Citizenship, Migration, and Belonging;’ Griselda San Martin, Artist; and Stephanie Bursese, PACC Program Manager, Haverford College.
The exhibition runs from Monday, February 19th - Sunday, March 4th and is open to the public Monday - Friday 9:30am - 5pm.
