For ‘Common Ground’ Juan delGado has curated a programme of moving image works by and about refugees and migrants.


From the everyday to the cataclysmic, the films and animations are tender, funny and heart rending. The exhibition features work by Amer Barzawi, Ayman Nahle, Basel Shehadi, Syrialism, Wael Toubaji, and Sarah Zeryab, alongside prints by Mohammad Barrangi.

delGado’s work, Altered Landscapes, is an immersive, multimedia installation that traces a personal narrative through the scarred vistas of Europe in the midst of the largest mass migration in living memory. Through the use of video, photography, light and sound, Altered Landscapes takes the viewer on a journey; an intimate account of the experience of travelling through an unfamiliar landscape echoing the real-life experience of tens of thousands of refugees.

‘Common Ground’ is produced by Isis Arts, and curated by Juan delGado for Platforma Festival 2017, a biennial showcase of artistic expression by, about and with refugees and migrants.
