The Peru-born, Spain-based artist Daniela Ortiz addresses nationality, colonialism, race and class to look at the politics of citizenship.


In her recent projects, she has drawn on her own experience as an immigrant to examine national and international migratory control systems. In Middlesbrough, Ortiz has led workshops with people seeking asylum, particularly single mothers and their pre-school children, to deal with some of the issues they face, from racism to perceptions around the ‘refugee crisis’. The exhibition gives a platform to these concerns, and the featured pieces include a children’s book that challenges stereotypes associated with migration as well as documents, recordings of lectures, films and paintings depicting scenic views of border territories.
