Violent Infrastructure: Ecologies of Decay and Displacement Photovoice Exhibition - 5th Floor - near registration
This is a traveling photovoice exhibition curated by Ariel Otruba (Arcadia University). The exhibition features thirty photographs taken by ten internally displaced persons (IDPs) from armed conflict in the Republic of Georgia. The photographs capture IDPs' three-decade-long experience living in "temporary" housing in the former Soviet spa resort of Tskaltubo. The photographs were collected as part of a research project, which studies the intimate and emotional impact of housing infrastructure conditions on IDPs' sense of identity, personhood, dignity, and agency. In a period of increasing numbers of forcibly displaced people worldwide, this exhibit builds critical consciousness by amplifying the voices of displaced persons to tell their stories of marginalization, social and spatial exclusion, and war’s capacity to harm over an elongated time horizon.
