The project gathers and exhibits photographs of Syrian refugees to focus on the story of the individual person by showing what they look like, how different they are to each other – and how alike we all are.
PASSAGE focuses on open and inclusive communication in public space, and represents a commentary on current, public debates on the situation of refugees in Denmark.
In the form of a visual montage, PASSAGE presents a series of narrative and visual representations of refugees based on their own stories and living spaces. Around 75 posters will tell the stories of their experience of leaving their families, friends and homes to begin a new life in an unfamiliar part of the world.
PASSAGE is located in the tunnel under Dronning Louise’s Bridge on Nørrebrogade. Here the tunnel itself and adjoining walls will be used to display a montage extending around 180m. The tunnel itself is a passage between the two sides of Copenhagen Canal, and therefore an optimal site to tell a contemporary story of people forced to flee war and destruction.

THE VOICE OF SHUFAT 2011
– Video projections in Shufat Refugee Camp, Jerusalem
25.0000 Palestinians live in the Shufat Refugee Camp, which was established in 1966 and is situated 4 km north of Jerusalem. The camp is entirely surrounded by Israeli settlements as well as the apartheid wall which isolates it from Jerusalem. Shufat Refugee Camp residents are daily exposed to assults from the Israeli occupaing forces, for instance closing of water supply, raids and demolishing of neighbourhood houses.

Så kan man kalde mig dansker, man ka kalde det for Danmark/ Bare ord på en snor i en verden af sanser/
Jeg er blandet/ det min sandhed/
Jeg ik pas og papirer/
Hvor jeg kommer fra er ik det samme som mine værdier/
