‘immigration clandestine’ is a long-term multimedia project on illegal immigration.

‘Immigration clandestine’ illustrates both the motives behind the risky decision to leave the homeland, and the situation that immigrants find themselves in once they reach Europe. The project is about West African immigrants, but serves as a model for immigrants in general. The current wave of immigration from North Africa to Europe – as a result of the Arab Spring – makes this project even more timely, and necessary.

The installation at the Dakar Biennale 2012, and the Hilton Hotel and Hotel Arena is a collaboration of the artists Ellert Haitjema and Judith Quax.
