In Objects in/of Migration the artists of the Moving Matters Traveling workshop interact with the collection of the Allard Pierson Museum of Mediterranean Antiquities to explore the relationship of mobility to value and materiality. Does movement add to an object’s value? To that of a person? What cherished objects do migrants carry with them in their travels? What things are cast by the wayside by a serial migrant or by History? The artists pondered the interplay of memory and loss, materiality and embodiment in an exhibition and performance developed through interactions with the museum and its objects in an exhibition and a performance.
