It s been on the front pages of most of the newspapers since now many many months, and usually has been described as a crisis : Humanitarian, economical, religious or cultural. Most of the time everyone , on any side is being represented as a victim and we rarely hear the voices of those who help, welcome and care about each other.
Last December I had the opportunity to work with a great artist that decided to embrace this hot topic on immigrants ; it took us time to find out what was the best way to put images on his lyrics and his music. It took time to avoid the traps such project could have. It took some thinking to maintain a balance between the reality and the fantasy of the situation. Yes a very complex equation just like the situation of any immigrant and the country that welcomes him , by duty or free will.
This project called back my personal family s history – refugees in Europe in the 80s – which added an interesting personal involvement in it.
So here we go with the link to it ; I hope you will enjoy it and as usual, stay tuned for more updates on my work …and collaborations 😉
