Sara Raza discusses the work of video artist and photographer Ori Gersht in relation to the exhibition’s theme of migration. Raza talks about her curatorial aim of addressing the movement of ideas and people, and their interaction in relation to civil liberties, delineating the significance of Walter Benjamin’s efforts to flee Nazi-occupied France through the Pyrenees, a challenging and ill-fated journey narrated and elaborated upon in Gersht’s video work, Evaders.
