Effects of Hate

“Balkans: Europe's Invisible Wall” compiles the testimony of migrants and refugees in Serbia and Bosnia who denounce deportations, beatings, and abuse by the Croatian police.
This exhibition is intended to be adaptable to different terrains of public space. Its exhibition design is made up of three blocks of photographs through which the different stories are told. These photographic blocks allow the entrance and exit of the visitors, a fact that facilitates the narrative composition and evokes the visitors to know the stories in more depth.
