Baltensperger + Siepert
will present their new book

Ways to Escape One’s Former Country
Handbook for an Uncertain Migration

There will be a reading in English, German, and Arabic at 7pm.

Ways to Escape One’s Former Country is based on eighteen interviews with immigrants in Switzerland conducted between 2015 and 2017, with focus on the pragmatic aspects of their fleeing. Baltensperger + Siepert then appropriated the interviews and transformed them into direct instructions of how to leave one’s former home country to get to Europe. 

As the book is not for sale, we will distribute it for free.
