WHEN: 16:00 – 18:00, Tuesday 1 November 2017 (the exhibition will run 2.11.2017 – 16.1.2018)
WHERE: Arbejdermuseet, Rømersgade 22, Copenhagen City
The exhibition entitled disEMPOWERMENT is a part of the year long special exhibition StopSlaveri! at the Arbejdermuseet in Copenhagen.
ImmigrantART has been working together with the anti-trafficking NGO HopeNow on a multi-media pop-up exhibition at the Arbejdermuseet (The Workers Museum). The exhibition raises awareness about the work that HopeNow does and the issue of human trafficking, which is commonly referred to as modern day slavery.
disEMPOWERMENT will feature interpretations of subjects such as freedom, slavery, exploitation, heritage, and hope. It features painting, drawing, graphic design and installation by five artists from the ImmigrantART network (Behnaz, Nel Thomas, Haya Azrak, Evangelene S Paul and Katrine Bælum), two video clips by documentary filmmaker Anja Dalhoff, an advertisment made by HopeNow, and an infographic on human trafficking by Kartine Bælum.
