Overview

Detours is an exhibition about people in forced displacement. It invites you to laugh and cry, experience for yourself the refugee's abiding sense of loss and desperation, and observe how, at first glance, the ravages of wartime bombing can also possess a strange kind of beauty. Detours is made up of several smaller displays and installations that depict life as a refugee in widely differing ways. Through humour and sarcasm, and using the refugees' own images and stories, the audience will draw closer to those who have been forced to flee from Syria. We meet young women who left Syria to study before the outbreak of war, and who have been unable to return home. We meet Syrian men who have fled across the border into Lebanon, and who send desperate messages home to their families. We meet Syrian children who are trying to keep their courage up, while their lives have been put on hold in a refugee camp far from home. One thing they all share is that they have escaped the bombs. They are safe, but still feel trapped. They have lost their homeland and their dreams for the future. Their lives have taken a detour.
