Recent migration waves have unleashed a debate in Europe about humanitarianism and borders. This lecture discusses the practice of two image-makers focusing on migration in this context. Tina Enghoff, a Danish artist, videographer and designer, collaborates with undocumented migrants in a documentation of their experience of the city. Swedish photojournalist and filmmaker Magnus Wennman portrays refugee children sleeping in the open air in places both peaceful and unsettling. Photography is a part of a wider practice for each image-maker. Based on interviews and analyses of selected projects, the lecture addresses strategies for empathy and agency and for engaging publics.
