Artist Banu Cennetoğlu and The Guardian to Publish List of Refugee Deaths

LONDON, ENGLAND—In conjunction with her forthcoming exhibition at London’s Chisenhale Gallery, Banu Cennetoğlu is also facilitating the distribution of “The List” in The Guardian, in print and online, on June 20, 2018, World Refugee Day.

Compiled and updated each year by UNITED for Intercultural Action, an antidiscrimination network of 550 organizations in forty-eight countries, “The List” traces information related to the deaths of 34,361 refugees and migrants who have lost their lives within, or on the borders of Europe since 1993 (last documented as of May 5, 2018).

Since 2007, Cennetoğlu has facilitated versions of “The List” in collaboration with art workers and institutions, often using public spaces such as billboards and newspapers. This edition of “The List” is produced by Chisenhale Gallery and the Liverpool Biennial, and it is the first time the document has been distributed to UK audiences.

Cennetoğlu's show will be on view at Chisenhale Gallery from June 28 to August 26.
