About the sound installation

The installation is the result of a collaborative process with the residents of the Red Cross Refugee Center Overpelt. In a participatory process they were guided to express themselves through sound. Through the doors, you hear songs, memories, stories, voices and dreams of people on the run. They literally get a place in the landscape and in this way claim their presence and audibility.
