4 out of 5 stars

The perilous, arduous, shocking journeys of migrants and refugees are splayed across screens, shown as hands tracing routes across maps. The travellers take you through each stop, through their hardships and their journeys home. There are only a handful of trips projected here, but it still feels like too many – these ‘enforced journeys’ are happening all over the world, all the time. Refugees, migrants, people from places of conflict: this is how they live. Moroccan-French artist Khalili then turns those trips into blue maps, constellations of struggle. The whole show exposes a wound – it’s uncomfortable, but it’s important, so don’t look away.
