Carola Vasileiadi holds a BS in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences from the University of Amsterdam. At Framer Framed, she conducted art-based participatory research on the practices of the art collective We Sell Reality. While working with the collective towards their exhibition, a deeper understanding of the construction of a counter narrative on undocumented migration emerged. Outcomes of the study can be found in her Master Thesis Urban Geography We are not documents but human beings (2021), it manifest the important function of Framer Framed as a local space of belonging for forced migrants in the city.
Currently Carola works as a research assistant at Utrecht University within the department of Social Geography. In collaboration with Framer Framed, she is working on the programming of an academic and artistic conference on refugee youth in public space. With her work, she opts to build the bridge between academic research and artistic practices. She hopes to connect both worlds so that they can join forces in their common goal of making the city a more inclusive home for all its residents.
