An exhibition on memory, identity and the uncertainty of the Yazidi people.
Photographs by David del Campo
On 3 August 2014, ISIS perpetrated the latest of 74 genocides that the Yazidi people (a pre-Islamic ethnic minority) have suffered throughout history. The exhibition ‘3/8’ speaks to us about the things which make up everyday life in the Yazidi refugee camps of Turkish Kurdistan: the memory of the genocide, the affirmation of their identity and the uncertain future that awaits them. The exhibition presents two living spaces: a physical one, limited to the 12 square metres taken up by their tents, and a virtual one where the refugees use Facebook to remember the tragedy they lived through, share news or simply exchange good wishes.
