REFOODEES

Napoli 2019

What do recipes created by travellers from 19th century Procida, contemporary Guinea-Conakry and Poland in the 90's have in common?

In Germany more than 169 people with migration background have been killed by rightwing criminals since 1990. Some institutions like the Amadeu-Antonio-Stiftung think the number might be twice as high.
In the same period neofascist terrorist have committed frequent arson attacks on refugee centers. The image used depicts an empty house in Weissach im Tal that had been destined for housing refugees in the near future and was set on fire before that. It dates from 2015, a clear message that right wing terrorism is alive and well.
#Refoodees is an interactive installation that deals with the life conditions of people who migrated to Western Europe in the 90's and later, and injustices that are unsolved up until today. 

Big kudos to Marina Mosca from #centrodialimentazioneconsapevole for her expertise on migrant recipes made during the Mediterranean crossing from Procida island to Algeria. All my respect to Vane @dg_vane_officiel who agreed to share a 'recipe' created from need during his trip from Guinea-Conakry to Italy. Thanks to the amazing Marina Nardone for her help and support. Infinite gratitude to my mother for her own survival recipes created during emigration from Poland to Germany.
