Refugees: Forced to Flee
by Nissen Richards Studio

Gareth Gardner

Throughout history, sudden and protracted periods of conflict have forced people from their homes to seek safety and build new lives.

‘Refugees: Forced to Flee’ at IWM London takes as its subject the experience of refugees from the last 100 years, from Nazi Germany’s persecution of Jews and the Kindertransport to the Calais Jungle and the treacherous Mediterranean crossings. The exhibition explores the subsequent displacement as a devastating human consequence of conflict.

This project has been longlisted in the exhibition design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
