Liz Fekete and Mark Rice-Oxley discuss The List

Monday 23 July, 7.00–9.00pm

Liz Fekete, Director of the Institute of Race Relations, and Mark Rice-Oxley, Head of The Guardian’s special projects discuss the European migration crisis, using The List as a source document.

Compiled and updated each year by UNITED for Intercultural Action, an anti-discrimination network of 550 organisations in 48 countries, The List traces information relating to the deaths of 34,361 refugees and migrants who have lost their lives within, or on the borders of Europe since 1993 (documented as of 5 May 2018). Since 2007, in collaboration with art workers and institutions, Banu Cennetoğlu has facilitated updated versions of The List using public spaces such as billboards, transport networks and newspapers.

In conjunction with her installation at the gallery Banu Cennetoğlu facilitated the distribution of The List in The Guardian newspaper, in print and online on 20 June 2018, World Refugee Day. This edition of The List is produced by Chisenhale Gallery and Liverpool Biennial.
