The Fundació Joan Miró presents Rotterdammers
Rotterdammers is a series of portraits of the inhabitants of Rotterdam, the city where Shehera Grot lives. It reveals her interest in the personal stories of her subjects, many of whom are, like her, people from different origins and cultures.
The photographic project aims to give visitors insights into the lives of people who transit every day between diverse identities. Rotterdam is one of the most diverse cities in the world; it is home to people of more than 170 nationalities, and half of its population is of migrant origin. According to Martina Millà, the exhibition’s curator, ’the relationship that Grot forged with her subjects has enabled her to share doubts and questions about life in Rotterdam with them. As a mirror of that reality, they also demand to be considered an important part of the local culture.’
