Join us for an evening with Magnum photographer Thomas Dworzak, who will discuss Europa: An Illustrated Introduction to Europe for Migrants and Refugees and his “Instagram books” collection in conversation with ICP Associate Curator Pauline Vermare.
Developed while Dworzak was extensively covering the refugee crisis unfolding in Europe, Europa is a practical manual created to aid and educate migrants re-settling across the European Union. Written in four languages and available at no charge to refugees, migrants, and NGOs, as well as a free ebook download, Europa presents the history of conflict migration while also providing critical educational information to support re-settlement into new communities. Using a Magnum Foundation Emergency Fund Grant, Dworzak traveled through the EU creating a visual survey of practical information, such as cheap supermarkets, public transport, and local food. Europa is included in the refugee crisis section of Perpetual Revolution: The Image and Social Change.
Dworzak’s “Instagram books” collection is a series of 20 scrapbooks compiled thematically using images discovered through various hashtags on the image-sharing network. The books will be featured in the public space of the ICP Museum from February 14 to May 7, 2017.Buy tickets/get more info now
