#DefineImmigrant

NOV 2015

Collective Art Intervention, VI Design

#DefineImmigrant is a project by a flash collective consisting of students in the Art, Education and Community Practice Program at NYU, led by Gran Fury member Avram Finkelstein. It aims to challenge the notion of what immigrant is and spark a dialogue around the contested issue of migration. Through intervention and performance #defineimmigrant engages the local community to respond to the politics of migration and basic human rights. 

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

Questions posed to the public include: Who is an immigrant? Why are you here? Why are some of us more acceptable than others? How do concepts of home and identity translate?
