Art that transcends borders

"Without even noticing, your identity transforms"
5:49 min

Artist Meriç Algün Ringborg lives between two worlds, her native country Turkey and her adopted home Sweden. She currently has a solo exhibition at the Modern Museum in Stockholm that confronts the issues related to being in transit: visa applications, language confusions, crossing borders and what it means to become European.

Fredrik Liew curated the exhibition and says that Algün Ringborg's work confronts the rising nationalism and racism in Europe and Sweden. He cites the magazine Glänta, saying that the increased migration bureaucracy and physical walls to international movement are desperate measures to protect national sovereignty.
