Migration Memory Encounters (MME) began in 2016-2017 by connecting and making visible and engaging cultural practitioners with differentiated reference and expression frameworks with both an old and a new audience in Malmö, Sweden. MME in the first year collaborated and created four thematic public seminars, exhibitions, theaters based on topics related to migration.


In the second year, 2017-2018, MME will carry on the first year's process results to other cities and regions in order to proceed in two given tracks; creating a space for the professional artists and for the immigrants in various forms of artistic expressions such as photography, film, music, writing, etc. in order to convey their own stories of memories and migration, regardless of language skills.


The second track will create a space for a thematic public discussion forum with quarterly arrangements around keen political and social topics based upon literature, art, film and activism.

Multifaceted exhibition: Fragmentary Life / Fragmentariskt Liv




Presenting Migration Memory Encounters and Creative Language Room

Migration Memory Encounters and Creative Language Room presents the exhibition Fragmentary Life

As the trajectory of a falcon, underscored by the rhythm provided by musicians Nariman Hodjati and Masih Madani, elegant Iranian dancer-choreographer Shahrokh Moshkin Ghalam spun dervish-like in a widening gyre, his svelte movements embracing the widening world of the arts, from the subatomic tracery of its paints and inks to the furthest reaches of its Diasporas. 


The exhibition took place June 1-12 at Jaktpaviljongen in Folkets park, Malmö – Sweden and the opening of the exhibition was at Saturday June 2:nd.

In order to make the city even more democratic, permissive, welcoming and available to all of us, we at Migration Memory Encounters and Creative Language Room redefined our common city together and created and curated the exhibition Fragmentary Life.


The exhibition included artworks within music, visual arts, literature and film. The ideas of identity, community and belonging were discussed and challenged to find different ways of purpose and context, for life at large and for the participants current fragmentary life.
