This event has ended.

Princen’s project originated as research for the IABR Rotterdam and explored the theme of “refuge urbanism.” This exhibition presents a series of works in which Princen observes contemporary urban transformation in Turkey and the Middle East: how Istanbul, Beirut, Amman, Cairo and Dubai have become laboratories for a proliferation of spaces and practices of refuge – spaces of extreme poverty on the one hand and wealth on the other, ranging from migrant worker camps to gated satellite cities in the desert.
