The photo exhibition “'Exodus Deja-Vu” focusing on the refugee crisis throughout the world comes to the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre from Tuesday (February 6) to February 18, showcasing the works of seven photojournalists and photographers who have closely followed and captured the perilous journey of those forced to flee their homes.

Supported by the UNHCR, the Embassy of France in Thailand, the Bangkok Art & Culture Centre, Asylum Access Thailand, and Amnesty Thailand, the exhibition documents the wars and the people fleeing and builds a consensus by interconnecting people speaking different languages, living different lives but sharing the same human rights.

Each photographer brings his and her own knowledge of the events. Visioncy introduces the work of two generations of reporters, united under the theme of refugees: Coskun Aral (Turkey), Suthep Kritsanavarin (Thailand), Issa Touma (Syria), Roland Neveu (France), Sergey Ponomarev (Russia), Rahman Roslan (Malaysia), and Greg Constantine (Canada).

The exhibition also features a guided visit with the curator and Visioncy director Patrice Vallette plus panel discussions with Aral, Neveu, Suthep and Roslan. Activities with refugees will also be organized by Amnesty International Thailand allowing the public to encounter and engage with several groups of refugees expressing their situation and sufferings through drawings or henna during the duration of the exhibition.
