Abstract

MIGRATIONS hopes to draw attention to the plight of thousands of children and their families who are, as a result of oppressive regimes, violence or poverty, forced to migrate to safer places in the world. Artists may not be able to change regimes, influence governments or save the migrants, but they can raise awareness of a reality that has become part of the contemporary socio-political environment. As visual storytellers and communicators, we can continue to pose questions and challenge indifference through our work, at the same time highlighting the positive impact that the migration of peoples, cultures and ideas has had across the globe. An installation of over 300 postcards from illustrators all over the world makes up one half of the exhibition. Each of these shows a migrating bird, ‘flying’ or ‘perching’ in a room in BIBIANA, Bratislava, Slovakia. This installation in itself shows that culture and ideas migrate across human borders, barriers and bans. The rest of the exhibition consists of work produced on the same theme, by Illustration Lecturers at the University of Worcester.
