Alienation

By Barjeel Art Foundation

Alienation, a state of being detached or estranged, can refer to how people are excluded or marginalised due to barriers in language, culture, religion, social disposition, sexuality or political views. The consequences of these barriers take shape in various contexts, including ties between nations and ideological clashes between individuals. Works in this exhibition highlight how alienation is manifested in scenarios as diverse as geopolitical relations and personal daily experiences. The works investigate the banalities of immigration processes, as well as ideas of national identity.
