Now You See Me Moria


2 July - 25 August

Pain, anger and personal stories are at the core of this special project about daily life in Moria. This refugee camp, located in Greece, is the largest in Europe. A group of people from Moria share their photos and stories via Instagram. @now_you_se_me_moria was started in August 2020 by Amir, a young Afghan man, and Noemí, a Spanish image editor who lives and works in the Netherlands. Foam presents a selection of photos and posters from this project, beginning 2 July.

Now You See Me Moria addresses existing stereotypes about refugees by stressing the importance of self-representation. The images in this exhibition strike a chord because they are taken by people who are stuck in Moria. A selection of the photographs show women living in the camp and are also taken by women from the camp. Many of these photos are taken with a cell phone. They portray the intimate everyday world of the residents. The people in them, including many children, remain anonymous to ensure their safety. Even though the photos are not always perfectly framed or aesthetically pleasing their strength lies in their authenticity. The viewer feels the gravity of the images.
