Stories of Migration Now You See Me Moria
The final episode of our mini-series 'Stories of Migration' will focus on Now You See Me Moria, a cross-national collective consisting of Noemí, Amir, Qutaeba, Ali, Mustafa and others who continue to join. Claartje van Dijk, head of exhibitions at Foam, will speak with Noemi, the Amsterdam-based photo editor and leading force behind Now You See Me Moria, to give an insight into the collective's work and mission.
Personal experiences, anger and pain are the basis of a special project in which refugees share personal photos and stories via Instagram about their daily life in Moria, the largest refugee camp in Europe, located in Greece. In August 2020 Amir, a refugee living in Moria and Noemí, started their collaboration by setting up the Instagram account now_you_see_me_moria and publish pictures of life at the camp. Since then, Now You See Me Moria got the attention of various media outlets, individuals and organizations across Europe. Today the account has a following of more than 30,000 people. More importantly: a growing number of followers have started collaborations with the collective. From a small collaboration Now You See Me Moria has become a civil rights movement demanding fundamental change to European migration policy.
