Comment

On the 7th of september In Limbo Embassy will take up residence in front of Pakhuis de Zwijger for one week. We will use this occasion to organize a program on the role, importance and responsibility of ' the arts' regarding the pressing refugee problem.

There are few means – within the law – to help refugees, but with specific art projects, we can seek loopholes in existing legislation. To help these people exercise their basic rights on the one hand and to bring about a lively debate on the other.
