In this exhibition, We Sell Reality reflects on the paradox of closed borders for some and open borders for others. Their projects express a Europe that disappoints through its failing asylum policy. They visualise a need for survival and what it means to be uprooted, but also showcase the pride, love and strength of the participants. During the exhibition, they sold books, toys and artwork made by the group to raise money to continue their practice.
