About the exhibition:
Demographic changes affect global and local politics, economies, urban affairs and day to day life.
For some of those who were lucky to be born in a stable, strong, democratic country, it is hard to accept those changes. It creates fear of job loss and the changing of familiar local culture. Immigrants or refugees face changes adapting to social behavior codes. History forewarns what can happen when hate, fear and a sense of threat grows among and between people coming from different cultures, who now share space.
Making peace within oneself – coexisting with oneself and others – can be achieved in many ways. This group exhibition is a safe place to express and explore these clashes of culture.
