A text by by Isabel Gil Everaert.
“Did you just say that you are undocumented? Aren´t you scared that somebody is here just to get a reward for turning you in?” The assumed safety of the space I had been walking around for hours was suddenly called into question by one of the visitors of the art exhibition. That simple but profoundly important question became the guiding query of my research from that moment on. Since then, I have been exploring how “illegality” is experienced, constructed, and coped both by individuals and by larger groups.Advertisements
