interview of Sonja

The setup of the installation is simple: emergency beds, that serve as beds for asylum seekers, are equipped with speakers and they are broadcasting an array of stories. The audience is invited to lie down and listen. The stories have been carefully edited to give an insight into the life of the person portrayed and are looking to find new ways of engaging with the ‘story of a refugee’.
