Name: No One is Illegal
Location: HOME, Tony Wilson Place
Artist: Tara Collette
‘No one is illegal’ is a direct provocation against the treatment of non-white and non-western people and groups, not only in the UK also in other western democracies. People seeking political refuge, communities escaping oppression, families travelling thousands of miles for a better life – all should be valued and treated at the very least, like the goods we import.
