Don Quichotte new @-exhibition theme: Illegal Immigration
Every year, "journey of hope"of thousands of people which is held by highway or seaway, has not always a happy end. Despite measures against this illegal way of immigration, millions of people are dying during this "death ride". Especially, to arrive to the destination is a big luck for the people who prefer seaway. The bad conditions of the weather and unsafe boats are the main reasons of this tragedy. Illegal immigration is not only achieved by seaway, but also there are immigrations which are held by highway. Unfortunately, many of these are ending with tragedy. Moreover, African countries are demanding illegal immigration more than other countries.
It should be noted that there's an international annuity which is nourished from the people with the dream of a life with higher standards of living, who die tragically. Rising unemployment due to the global economic crisis triggered immigration of cheap and illegal workers. In Italy we have experienced the biggest tragedy, is a kind of survive from underdeveloped countries to developed countries. Just in a boat, the number of deaths was over 350.
We want to get under the spotlight their unsafe journeys from their own countries to other countries, the illegal gangs which left them with danger of death, expulsion reasons of the referencing country for asylum. Our goal is to attract attention of world public opinion to this everlasting tragedy, to contribute with a touch of art.
At the end of the exhibition the most successful 3 cartoons will be awarded with "Don Quichotte" medal. In addition 10 other cartoons will be given "certificate of Don Quichotte" as a reward.
