Ethnoscapes is an international photo exhibition investigating issues of (social) deterritorialization, migration, and hybrid identities. With the rapidly expanding forces of globalization, borders appear to be collapsing in a whirlwind of new technologies and communication possibilities. In some ways, we are experiencing possibilities of mobility never seen before, though, simultaneously, national borders are increasingly constricted, surveillance intensified, and immigrant rights deflated. Through the diverse lens of 18 international artists, this exhibition examines the ambiguity of living in constant cross - cultural transit, as well as explores the contradictory regimes of (im)mobility and trans-nationality in today's globalized world.
