A World on the Move, Women and Refuge

Keywords: Mural, Public Space, Migration, Oviedo
The mural was part of the urban art contest ‘A World on the Move. Women and Refuge,’ which sought to make visibile the reality of migrants and refugees in the city of Oviedo, Spain.
The mural shows an encounter between a white woman and the painting of the Muslim woman as if both were in a conversation with each other. They seem to be acknowledging a shared space in the city, but the handrail reminds us of the presence of borders between them.
