Zweibrücken refugee camp (DE)

The former airport of Zweibrücken, located in Germany near the French border hosts 520 refugees, 294 men, 155 women and 71 minors. In theory this camp, managed by the Red Cross and Red Crescent, acts as a stop where families get reunited while they ask for asylum in Germany. The families live within the confines of the airport, sleeping on 800 bunk beds, separated by fabric curtains. The Jungleye Zweibrücken Workshop focused on the airport, using it as both a theme and metaphor in the work. Despite the fact that the refugees were living in an airport, like a grounded plane, they were not able to cross the border. The workshops, aiming to understand the symbolism and surrounding context of these facts, encouraged the participants to focus their cameras on their surroundings. Family portraits were also a way to portray the meeting points for these families who were divided by the war and exile.
