Vukasin Nedeljkovic initiated the multidisciplinary project Asylum Archive. Asylum Archive is a platform open for dialogue and discussion inclusive to individuals who have experienced a sense of sociological/geographical ‘displacement’, social trauma and violence. It is an act of solidarity to bring a different perspective on the life of people who came to Ireland seeking protection.
Asylum Archive’s objective is to collaborate with asylum seekers, artists, academics and activists, amongst others, with a view to creating an interactive documentary cross-platform on-line resource, critically foregrounding accounts of exile, displacement, trauma and memory.
His recent book Asylum Archive, a unique and essential publication in making the reality of Ireland’s Direct Provision system public, can be accessed here.
