NOT WELCOME Exhibition

OK Center Front-1

Exhibition NOT WELCOME on 23. Juni 2016, at Martin Luther Platz.

Space & Design Strategies explores manifestations of welcome culture in a society in constant change. While welcome culture is celebrating its comeback – flatshare, couchsurfing, Facebook and civil society´s aid for migrants and refugees – Europe and Austria have both closed their borders. The Berlin Wall has disappeared but border fences have expanded incessantly over the past years. Private as well as nationwide security measures have been taken with the purpose of preventing outsiders from entering the crystal palace of globalisation winners.

In the exhibition NOT WELCOME students have shared their thoughts on the topic, creating artwork that can seem naive, humorous or even cynical. Their aim was however to bring the doubts, worries, hopes and possible solutions surrounding the so-called refugee crisis to discussion.
