This booklet is an outcome from the “Future vocabularies” workgroup at the workshop taught by We Are Here association and BAK (Utrecht and Amsterdam, 5th – 9th April 2016), considering the question of representation within art and politics with regards to refugees’ struggle. The series considers the need for a new lexicon to sustain an actualized understanding engaging in developing a new collective dictionary. Here we contributed in creating a space and opening doors for a sincere and honest discussion about the complex relation between refugees and citizens, the most urgent issue we are encountering around the world today.
It was also the experience that contributed to bring us back to the Netherlands, for the BAK’s Fellowship 2017/2018 Propositions for Non Fascist Living.
