“The first inspiration happened when I saw the shocking news about the body of a Syrian boy found lying face-down on a beach near a resort in Greece. From that moment on, I couldn’t stop thinking about this “Desperate journey. Then I started to research further about this issue.” Tewodros added “for how much longer should we watch this human tragedy? Are we trying enough to change this problem from its root? Or are we just getting used to it? What is going on behind all these atrocities?”
The exhibition tries to embed those questions. The exhibition aims to reexamine this never ending situation that is becoming acceptable and wishes to challenge the viewers to raise their concern and act upon it in their own way.
