Bouchra Khalili is an Artist for Moria

Artists for Moria is a fundraiser organized by the non-profit group State of Concept in Athens. Aiming to support Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in its efforts on the island of Lesvos, Greece, sixteen international artists, including Bouchra Khalili, have donated works of art to raise money and awareness for this cause.

"Despite urgent calls to address the imminent dangers to all refugees by the COVID-19 pandemic, little action is taken by the Greek government and the European Union. The refugee crisis is also the result of wars waged by many of our governments, and the marginalization of refugees is due to the rise of extreme-right parties and rhetorics across the EU. We aim to raise attention to the unacceptable conditions in the Greek camps, while we insist on the political obligation for a structural, European-wide defense of refugee rights. Help MSF by buying a work, by donating directly or by sharing this fundraiser, so that we reach our goal to collect Euro 15,000 for Moria refugee camp."
