Valletta European Capital of Culture 2018



To be [defined] aims at articulating two main concepts about displacement, migration and exile: definition and construction on one side and de-construction and resistance on the other one.

Starting from the many representations and definitions of the persons that we call “migrants”, the exhibition investigates the means, rhetorics, rituals, discourses, limits and banalities, the institutions, the imaginary and the relations that construct the object “migrant” and the extent to which this construction is affecting the lives and the imagination of the same subjects. On the other hand, it will also take into account the resistance of the subjects, namely how each person manages to reclaim their subjectivity and their identity as individuals beyond the label they are given of migrants. This act of reclaiming can occur across different lines of struggle, both intimate and public, but all militant, all revolutionary, all related.
