Tate Modern Talk

Searching for Great Aunt Minna

Jillian Edelstein in conversation with Liz Jobey on a story of immigration and healing

Searching for Great Aunt Minna was inspired by a photograph and a commissioned photo essay for the London Sunday Times Magazine about the Sangoma, the traditional healers, (shamans) who are called by their Ancestors to heal.

For Who Are We?, Jillian Edelstein will be in conversation with Liz Jobey, an associate editor of the FT Weekend Magazine. Jillian’s story takes in the history of Eastern Europe and the solid immigration drive to Southern Africa from Eastern Europe. Photography, film interviews and diary pieces are used to illustrate her  family’s search for stability due to forced removal. This story echoes the lives of everyday migrants and asylum seekers today coming to Europe from the challenged parts of Africa, and the conflict zones of the Middle East.

This event is part of Who Are We?. See whoareweproject.com for full contributor and programme details.
