Make a Change is an exhibition where different perspectives on migration and movement of
people appear. It is also a meeting place for participation in constant flux, and a place for dialogue
What challenges can a temporary exhibition try to tackle in a time when 60 million people are
fleeing from war, violence and terror in the world? The acute refugee crisis, the European
countries' different ways of acting in a humanitarian disaster situation, the forgotten colonial
background of the European Union, power and globalization - are all complicated and important
topics in the background of the exhibition but not the statements of the artworks. The exhibition is
about existential questions, the human condition, and about the transformative and reflective part
that art can play in society. Some works draw connections between history and our time, others
between the global and local. Questions about identity, home and hope blend with alienation,
exclusion and survival.
Make a Change is an exhibition with eleven artists from different countries and continents. There
are artists living in exile and artists without countries, relocated in the interstice between places
and people. There are artists with own experience of fleeing and artists that have been working
with the question of migration during many years.
