Heimatlos : The stateless present

featuring the work of Alican Erkol, Anna Wels, Jagdish PatelJasim Ghafur

‘Heimatlos’ is a state of being without any homeland, often civilians who have been denationalised, dislocated and displaced. The 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees was established in the aftermath of the Second World War when refugees and displaced persons was high on the international agenda. In this exhibition four artists reflect on past and current issues facing refugees in the UK.
