Curated by Raphael Gygax, the fairs non-profit programme Projects explored the theme of identity and societies relationship with ‘other’. One of main attractions within the section was Lucy + Jorge Orta’s Antarctica’s World Passport Project. This collaborative project aims to raise awareness and spread a message of urgency with regards to people and communities who are victims of climate change. The passport acts as a pledge of dedication to create a better future for the environment.
