This is Evidence, a multi-media Photovoice exhibit focusses on undocumented South Asian male migrants from Bangladesh, Pakistan, and India living in Greece. “This will let the people learn how we live our lives here,” —these words from an undocumented Bangladeshi migrant worker sums the impetus behind this exhibit. Themes include xenophobia, Islamophobia, temporary labour migration, securitization of borders, as well as enactments of masculinity and encounters between migrant men and the Greek population. The exhibit includes photographic stills and videos taken by the migrant men to show their lives as undocumented workers, drone films, interactive touchscreens, maps showing migrant trajectories, life-histories, songs sung and games played for leisure, and reconstructed migrant housing.
