Human mobility is a building block in historical development, and migrants act as a cultural bond in the exchange of ideas and achievements that shape and re-shape cultural identities throughout history. Whether peaceful or a fruit of conflicts, human migration has led to new inspirations and innovations, while at the same time has caused deterioration and destruction. Hence, we invite to the exhibition works of art that explore the topic of human migration and its consequences in creating cultures and transforming identities.
