Opening February 2020, "Transient Matter: Assemblages of Migration in the Mediterranean"

The Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology is proud to announce our next exhibit installation, opening February 20th 2020, Transient Matter: Assemblages of Migration in the Mediterranean. 

Every year, hundreds of thousands of migrants from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Congo, and other countries across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia try to cross the Mediterranean Sea, hoping to enter the European Union. These open-water crossings have become the deadliest migratory routes in the world. Since 2014, nearly 1.2 million of these migrants have attempted to reach Europe through the Eastern Mediterranean route, crossing from Turkey to Greece.
