with Kadir van Lohuizen
Thursday October 22, 2015 at 6:00 PM

in Via PanAm, Kadir van Lohuizen investigates the roots of migration in the Americas. By seeking answers to questions such as ‘Why do people migrate? Where to and for waht reasons What is the fate of the different indigenous populations in the Americas?’ Van Luihuizen taps into a phenomenon that is increasingly portrayed as a new threat to the Western world. Traveling 40,000 km along the PanAmerican Highway and crossing through 15 countries, Van Luizen visualized the stories of the communities, regions and societies he encountered, focusing on the people involved. Their stories show their strength and their vulnerability, the variety of motivations they have and the roads they travel.
