Stories of Refuge

An installation by Tania El Khoury

From "Stories of Refuge." From "Stories of Refuge."
From "Stories of Refuge."
Since the beginning of the Syrian revolution in 2011, Syrian refugees have been fleeing the brutal regime in search of safe haven. Munich, Germany, is one of the cities many Syrian refugees land after crossing unofficial borders through different European countries. Lebanese artist Tania El Khoury, and her art collective Dictaphone Group, collaborated with a group of Syrian refugees who had recently arrived in Munich. El Khoury gave each of these participants/collaborators a discreet camera for a day, their only instructions being to film their daily lives in Munich. Together they produced three videos, presented in this installation and viewed from bunk bed barracks in the gallery.
