Syrian Blood by Edd Carlile

 

Budapest Seen has been an online window through which the refugee crisis at Keleti station has unfolded over recent weeks. Images posted daily via Facebook illustrate not only the suffering of those passing through, but also interaction between refugees and citizens of Budapest. With many at best ambivalent towards arrivals, Budapest Seen has performed the essential task of giving every human a face, providing a context for humanitarian crisis, and restoring hope and humanity to a situation that had at times appeared to be losing both. (Stefan Roch and Josh Posaner)
The exhibition is dedicated to the Hungarian volunteers who have saved many lives and to the 71 refugees running to freedom, who lost theirs in Austria.Opening speech by Prem Kumar Rajaram (Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology)
