Stimela: Southern Africa Migration Project
Thursday July 13 - 7:30-9pm / MAXXI

Luca Sola

MAXXI Museum of 21st Century Art, in Rome, presents Stimela Project, an ongoing series by the photographer Luca Sola documenting the migrant flux in Austral Africa.

The series Stimela, which means “steam train” in Zulu, also covers the conditions of the Malawi prisons where hundreds of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers are detained with thousands of Malawi’s citizens in highly inhumane conditions.

There is a submerged ocean of millions of humans who move in search of a place to stay. Some go north, to Europe for example. With the Stimela project I chose to talk about the many forgotten people who head south. Opposite direction. Same reasons. Same hopes. Same risks and difficulties. The same solitudes.

With these words, the documentary photographer Luca Sola presents the Stimela Project, which began in 2015 to carry out a mapping of migratory phenomena to the south of the African continent. Of the 16 countries involved in the project, there are currently 7 covered to date: Malawi, South Africa, Lesotho, Mozambique, Tanzania, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Central African Republic.
