Trading Places: an exhibition at the Pump House Gallery, 8 - 29 May 2004

Saturday, 08 May, 2004: The Bosnian Institute supports young Bosnian artists in a forthcoming exhibition
The work of young Bosnian artists Edina Husanovic, Šejla Kameric and Adla Isanovic will feature in Trading Places, an exhibition on art and migration at the Pump House Gallery, London, developed by curatorial team B+B. Edina Husanovic will be chairing a discussion on Thursday 27 May (see below) and Adla Isanovic will also be participating in discussion forums during the exhibition.

With the expansion of the European Union in May, issues of asylum and immigration are gaining widespread media attention. Trading Places will offer a critical platform to discuss Britain’s relationship to Europe and its borders by presenting sensitive and provocative projects that investigate and map experiences of migration. A programme of free screenings, artists’ talks and discussions will provide a space for constructive dialogue on issues of prejudice and representation. Trading Places brings together works in video, photography, public interventions and collaborative projects.

Among the free events taking place are:

Saturday 22 May 12.00 - 16.00
An afternoon of discussion and debate with Trading Places artists, including Adla Isanovic. Chaired by Susan Kelly (Goldsmith's University) and John Nassari (University of East London)

Thursday 27 May 18.00 - 20.00
The UK premiere of Sarajevo International by Kristina Leko and Sarajevo Guided Tours by Isa Rosenberger. Discussion chaired by artist and curator Edina Husanovic.
