Questioning the segregation of the migrant community
This photo project is an initiative of photographer Tetsturo Myazaki, researchers at UM, and the university’s Diversity Office. The project invites people to think about and question the labels they put on others by zooming into the distinction made between migrants and expats. For this photo project, twenty international professionals who self-identify as migrants and/or expats have been portrayed and interviewed.
In February 2022, when the Conference on the Future of Europe took place in Maastricht, there was a street expo in collaboration with Studio Europa Maastricht. To bring the debate about categorisations of migrants from the conference venue to the streets, five selected portraits were displayed in bus shelters across Maastricht.
