The EXILE exhibition will be part of the 80 Days of Summer festival in Ghent, displaying the photographic series in a unique setting, in keeping with this year’s theme is ‘Roots and Roads’.

The EXILE exhibition eschews any form of historical, chronological or geographical order. The aim is to visualize the sheer number of international conflicts which have occurred since the Second World War, and the resultant masses of exiles and refugees. Similar in their fate, interchangeable in their columns, the refugees progress towards an uncertain future, uprooted, homeless, unwanted. It includes reportages by 24 Magnum photographers.

Photographs from Antoine d’Agata’s Cherbourg series, and his video Oddysea will also be displayed during the festival.
