How does it feel when ‘migration’ and ‘memories’ collide and converge?

When artists are compelled to leave their homeland and relocate to new environments the effect on their art and creative expressions are subsequently affected or influenced by their journey as well as what they carry inside albeit transitory or deeply rooted.

At the beginning of this project, a dialogue was started on the forgotten artists who have seemingly been lost and those who have kept their work aside to pursue putting their lives back in order—some continue working on new

materials while some are not quite sure if to continue or not. Migration Memory Encounters was thus formed to create a platform for the various art forms from migrant artists to showcase their work and begin a vital conversation with the Swedish society.
