CAMP / Center for Art on Migration Politics was a nonprofit exhibition space for art discussing questions of displacement, migration, immigration, and asylum. The center was operative from 2015–2020 and was located in Trampoline House, an independent community center in Copenhagen that provides refugees, asylum seekers, and ethnic minority Danes in Denmark with a place of support, community, and purpose. CAMP produced exhibitions, events, publications, and education programs about migration and the questions this phenomena gives rise to today. The center worked with renowned international artists as well as less established practitioners, most with refugee or migrant experience, and gained international recognition for breaking new ground in exhibiting and communicating art that makes the human and societal challenges posed by migration present and relatable.
