Escaping Wars and Waves
The exhibition displays Olivier Kugler’s series of brilliant drawings of refugees from Syria. The drawings - which are collected in his book Escaping Wars and Waves - document the lives of individuals and families he met in Iraq Kurdistan, the tourist island of Kos, and the jungle camp at Calais, mostly on commission for Médecins Sans Frontières. During his work with Médecins Sans Frontières, Kugler recorded the experiences of refugees in London, Birmingham and Germany.
