On the Run – Podcast (EN) – Ester Eva Damen * – 3x±20′, 2023
During the exhibition, a refugee from Iran, persecuted for his homosexuality, will share his adventures in the Netherlands through interviews and an audio diary. With this podcast he hopes to reach other people in the same position and to give a complete picture to a European audience. Not only gays, but all Iranians have to survive with a questionable government. He gives us insight into the cultural context of Iran and his feelings of being betrayed and having to fight for acceptance.
‘Dear friend, You asked me not to mention your name and I understand why. I hardly know you and you hardly know me. Two days ago we had an online meeting. It was only supposed to last 40 minutes to an hour, but we kept extending it. Instead of recording your story, as I had in mind, you asked me to just listen to it. So I did. It took more than two and a half hours, then you were dead tired.‘
Migration is an age-old phenomenon that has shaped and transformed the world. People have always been fleeing, driven by all kinds of motives. Today, the media strongly influences our image of refugees and, often negatively. The story of people leaving loved ones behind and braving oceans in search of a better life is complex. People flee for war, discrimination or economic malaise and the effects of climate change.
However, fleeing also takes place on a smaller scale, for different reasons, within different cultures, and even within families. What do all these refugees share? What hopes, dreams and desires drive them? What should we do to better understand the refugee? How can we show empathy for their experiences, even if they fall outside our frame of reference?
- Musical quotes used in the podcast: I’m your man (Leonard Cohen); Blue Flowers (Marjan Farsad Khooneye Ma); Take me to Church (Hozier); Leafdesbang (Nynke Laverman), music by Homayoun Shajarian and poetry by Hushang Ebtehaj.
