The exhibition “Être d’ailleurs en temps de guerre (14-18), Étrangers à Dudelange – Dudelangeois à l’étranger” explores the link between war and human migrations. The case of the migrant town of Dudelange during WW1 allowed to follow the different trajectories drawn by those who willingly left, were forced to flee or sought refuge within its borders. The immersive, multisensory video installation by artists Chiara Ligi and Mauro Macella (Tokonoma), with a soundscape by composer Tommaso Leddi, link the thematic sections of the exhibition and the objects on display. Resulting from a collaboration between the C²DH University of Luxembourg and the Centre de Documentations sur les Migrations Humaines CDMH, the exhibition took place in Dudelange at the former station Gare-Usines from March to December 2018.
