Disposable Perspectives: Porte de la Chapelle

14 May 2018 - 9:00 am to 17 May 2018 - 4:00 pm
King's Art Rooms

This is a collaborative photography project that captures in simple humanising terms the experience of refugees in modern day Paris. Disposable Perspectives offers an antidote to the dehumanising media coverage of the 'migrant crisis' and returns control of the narrative to those most affected.

Between November 2016 and March 2018 a 400-bed transit centre was set up in the north of the French capital. Located under the concrete flyovers of the Périphérique, the Porte de la Chapelle camp became a key stop-over on the migrant map of Europe. Thousands of men passed through the camp; Disposable Perspectives provides a glimpse into the experiences of 15 of them.
