Refugees’ Lockdown. An art-based research project

Refugees’ Lockdown is an art-based research project organized by the Visual Sociology Research Group, the Oblò Association and the Controluce photographic club.

The goal is to create a visual archive and a collective art work on the experience of the pandemic for women and men seeking asylum or refugees. All those who have spent at least one month in the Italian reception system between January 2020 and the end of the initiative (May 31, 2021) can send their visual stories of the pandemic; the project is not focused on health aspects, rather on the consequences the pandemic entailed on the daily life of asylum seekers and refugees.

Photographs, illustrations and videos are admitted.

Tutti coloro che hanno trascorso almeno un mese nel sistema di accoglienza italiano tra gennaio 2020 e la fine dell’iniziativa (31 maggio 2021) possono inviare il loro racconto visivo della pandemia; il progetto non è focalizzato sugli aspetti sanitari, quanto sulle conseguenze che la pandemia ha comportato sulla vita quotidiana di richiedenti asilo e rifugiati.
