Visual Montage

PASSAGE was intended to be a comment on the ongoing debate about refugees coming to Denmark. A number of narrative representations of refugees and their individual stories emerged through the visual montage. The aim was to highlight what refugees look like, how different they are from one another, and how they nevertheless are like us.

75 posters told the stories of the refugees’ personal spaces, what it is like to leave your family, friends and belongings behind in order to begin a new life in an unfamiliar part of the world. The project focused on open and inclusive communication in public space, and was therefore located under Queen Louise’s Bridge on Nørrebrogade street. The tunnel as a passage and the neighbouring walls were included in the montage, which in this way covered an area of 165 meters. A perfect place to tell the story of people on the move.
