Since the refugee crisis began, hundreds of thousands of refugees have crossed the Balkans on their way to northern and western Europe.
However, the public has primarily focused on specific locations such as the Greek islands or the Hungarian border. Though the situations at these spots are often extreme, the problems refugees face do not end once they leave these places, but evolve as they continue on through the Balkans. Because of the limited amount of media coverage, little attention is paid to a large portion of the migrants’ journey.

From the walking of hundreds of miles to smugglers and closed borders, the Balkan route offers an entirely new set of difficulties that refugees must face in order to reach their desired destinations. Through this exhibition, join us on the Balkan Route!

Opening night 30th June with speakers.

The exhibition lasts until 10th of July
