Immediately after touching ground, the rescued migrants are brought into confined areas. In these spaces they are welcomed and cared for, but also kept waiting for a new destination. Hundreds of people remain unidentified for quite some time in a state where civil rights, nationality, and destiny are momentarily suspended. This indefinite state of time and space is a physical and political limbo. We've worked out five variations on the subject to try to understand what it's like to live in this state and then relate that to the public.
In Limbo is a project developed by the students of Abadir Academy.
