May 1, 2017

Artist Nadia Kaabi-Linke talks about her work in relation to themes of layering, history, migration, and the state of being in between cultures. While in Venice for the city’s 2010 Biennale, migrant street vendors fleeing from police caught Kaabi-Linke’s attention and sparked the creation of Flying Carpets. The artist relates this work to Meinstein, a public art project also inspired by immigrant communities.
