The library is hosting an exhibition that describes the world and experience of the globally mobile. These people come from all over the world to live and work outside their passport country. They are employed by the Industry, the Academia… The NGO network rely strongly on them. They are everywhere and nowhere: moving every three or five years from assignment to assignment, they are global nomads who will repatriate back to a country that will never feel like home. The exhibition is focusing on their moves and on their adjustments. The displays include photographs and drawings by Geneviève Guétemme about the Postdocs and visiting scholars in Cambridge, a screen piece by John Perivolaris and an audio piece by Janet Stewart which explores the Library’s Special Collections. There is also a children’s corner by art therapist Vicky Gray.
“have had only a short period of time to explore the exhibition but enjoyed especially the panoramic photographs – think they make a strong impression on that wall. […] visually very arresting.”
