Searching for Great Aunt Minna As part of Who Are We? Project, at Tate Exchange

As part of Who Are We? Project, at Tate Exchange

For Who Are We?, Jillian Edelstein will be in conversation with Liz Jobey, an associate editor of the FT Weekend Magazine. Jillian’s story takes in the history of Eastern Europe and the solid immigration drive to Southern Africa from Eastern Europe. Photography, film interviews and diary pieces are used to illustrate her family’s search for stability due to forced removal. This story echoes the lives of everyday migrants and asylum seekers today coming to Europe from the challenged parts of Africa, and the conflict zones of the Middle East. Jillian Edelstein is one of the artists currently commissioned by Counterpoints Arts. Book via the Tate Exchange.
