Atlantic Museum: Europe’s first underwater museum opens in Spain

Some 200 life-size human figures, created over the course of two years by British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, have been submerged 14 metres (46 feet) under the Atlantic Ocean, off the Canary Island of Lanzarote, in Spain.
The sculptures, some modelled after local residents, are made from environmentally friendly and pH-neutral materials and will attract plant and animal life, just like artificial reefs.
The artworks also include a 100-tonne, 30-metre (98 feet) long wall, a botanic garden and an installation called the Raft of Lampedusa, a sculpted boat carrying 13 refugees, which pays tribute to the ordeal of refugees who crossed the ocean during the recent migrant crisis.
According to the artist, the exhibition ‘aims to create a strong visual dialogue between art and nature.’

Overcrowding and Hostility Towards Migrants: Fortress Italia (Part 2/4)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

On October 3, 2013, over 360 migrants drowned in the Mediterranean Sea after their boat capsized near the island of Lampedusa. The geographical proximity of Lampedusa to the north coast of Africa has caused it to become one of Europe’s gateways for migrants, who each week arrive in Italy by sea in droves.

The majority of the migrants are fleeing war in Syria and Eritrea’s repressive regime in search of a better life. But unscrupulous traffickers and unsafe vessels often lead to many not surviving the journey. And under current European immigration laws, those who succeed in reaching Italian shores often end up stuck there.

In the first half of 2014, over 63,000 migrants arrived at Italy’s shores. Of those attempting to make the deadly journey to Europe, over 3,000 migrants have drowned trying to cross the Mediterranean, according to the International Organization for Migration.

VICE News headed to Lampedusa one year after the disaster and visited the centers that house large numbers of migrants in overcrowded and makeshift living conditions.

Of those attempting to make the deadly journey to Europe, over 3,000 migrants have drowned trying to cross the Mediterranean, according to the International Organization for Migration. Following the October 2013 tragedy, and amid pressure from the international community, Italy vowed to put some measures in place to help control the problem, and save lives.

VICE News headed to Lampedusa one year after the disaster to find out how Italy’s new sea rescue mission, Mare-Nostrum, along with regulations such as the Dublin Treaty, are affecting the influx of migrants.
