News from the ifa
The recent challenges of refugee movements and migration ask for both quick and long-term solutions by policy makers and civil society. Culture can make a major contribution in coping with these challenges and in integrating the refugees streaming into Europe, particularly when it comes to counteracting the growing scepticism against the EU and with populist and anti-European movements gaining strength. Several projects and publications of the ifa deal with these issues.
"It is because of the different people we meet, because of all their different stories and trajectories that we become who we are", says Alya Sebti, curator of the ifa exhibition "Carrefour/Meeting Point", in an interview with ifa. Together with the artist and architect Megumi Matsubara she talks about migration, politics and art.
