The Freedom of the Migrant

The Physics Room

Matthew Galloway explores the central themes introduced in Sir John Key’s 2016 hypothesis that terrorist attacks in Europe would benefit New Zealand by making our country more attractive to high net-worth consumers looking to escape constant uncertainty and instability. 

The exhibition addresses the impact and legacy of dominant political narratives constructed around terrorism and refugees, and their influence on our collective perceptions of border control, freedom of movement, and national identity.

The Freedom of the Migrant (2019) builds upon an exhibition of the same title curated by Lauren Gutsell and Lucy Hammonds, and developed and exhibited at Dunedin Public Art Gallery 21 April – 12 August 2018.
