Can Art Change The Narrative Around Forced Migration?

Can Art Change The Narrative Around Forced Migration?

Writer Ismail Einashe offers a poignant exploration into the themes of migration and belonging – and the plight of finding shelter in a foreign land.

Embarking on dangerous journeys to flee violence and persecution, migrants and refugees arrive on shores of Britain to seek aid. And yet, they have become scapegoats, vilified as an invasion.

Examining works from Britain’s national collection of art, Look Again: Strangers revisits this narrative to reveal the experience of the refugee, stranded from their home and loved ones in strange lands.



Look Again: Strangers by Ismail Einashe is out now on Tate Books.
