Passports: Globalisation in Contemporary European Video

Passports is an exhibition that explores ideas of migration, trade and globalisation through video works by contemporary European artists.

Passports is an exhibition that explores ideas of migration, trade and globalisation through video works by contemporary European artists. Through the opening of borders within the European Union to facilitate travel and free trade, existing notions of national identity have been transformed, allowing for a greater understanding of different cultures and, in some cases, a return to virulent nationalism.

Passports features video works by contemporary artists that address shifting ideas of identity through trade and cultural exchange. Including a dedicated education and research space, the exhibition poses the question: what does it mean to be Irish, French, Bosnian, Swiss, or even European in an increasingly globalised world?

Artists: Ursula Biemann & Angela Sanders, Michael Fortune, Thierry Geoffroy / Colonel, Kai Kaljo, Antti Laitinen, Maria Lusitano, and Nada Prlja.
