They move underground. They creep, run, crawl and blast their way through. Sometimes organized, sometimes unorganized. Sometimes fighting for their lives, sometimes fighting for a sense of freedom. They often seem isolated from each other and have no contact with other underground citizens.Tonight, we, the underground population, do it together."Kosmopolit (Greek: kosmos, the world and polites, citizen) is used in a political context to denote thestateless, sometimes with derogatory or blaming meaning. The cosmopolitan is a 'world citizen'."Welcome to a submerged, enveloping, and honoring art experience. We break down the barriers between us and explore our common sense of secrecy and freedom in our growing and global society. We celebrate each other through art, music, and dance and create a sense of unity and cohesion, despite our differences. It's time to show our strength and solidarity as cosmopolitans and to celebrate world citizenship. Let's get underground!

50 Years of Memories Chile/Sweden" was an exhibition featuring various artists and generations who interpreted and brought to light their experiences of exile and migration. Through different styles, artistic expressions, and perspectives, parts of the consequences of the Chilean dictatorship were presented. Additionally, the exhibition included an interactive element where visitors were encouraged to share their own experiences of exile and migration through photos, letters, symbols, etc. that could be hung up on the interactive exhibit. Themes explored in the exhibition included love, violence, struggle, resistance, longing, and living memories. As a participant in this exhibition, I had the privilege of contributing to a conversation that is both powerful and timely.
