Belonging – The Exhibition

The exhibition consisted of 28 puppets. Each was a self-portrait and had been made by an immigrant to Denmark. Some had lived here decades, some a matter of weeks. Some came for work, some for love and some because they had no choice. But how and when did they feel like they belong here?

As the puppets were being made, the participants shared their stories of living in Denmark, when they feel like they belong and when they don’t. You could read exerts from these stories underneath each puppet. The stories have  now been combined into a puppetry performance by TEATER animisme called Belonging.

Belonging – The Exhibition stood in Dokk 1 Aarhus 04.05.2021 – 06.06.2021
