Aktion Auktion” is an exhibition project with works donated from 130 danish artists. The art work will be sold at an auction as benefit for iraqi refugees currently treated by deportation. 
The purpose of the project is to give economic support to the the iraqi refugees and raise attention to their case and current situation. 
Despite massive public demand to grant the iraqi refugees humanitarian residence permits the danish government has chosen to start the deportations of the refugees arrested in Brorsons church in august. 
Last week 22 Iraqis were deported, five of whom were, instantly upon arriving in bagdad, arrested by the iraqi authorities, their current whereabouts are now unknown.
The rest of the deported are left with nearly no money, no connections and no knowledge of bagdad and a very uncertain future.
The deportations has forced the remaining iraqis to go underground, and they are now being searched for by the danish authorities.
They need support now more than ever.

“Aktion Auktion” is a declaration of solidarity with a group of people whom the danish government wishes to forcefully deport to a country that the same government has helped topple into war and chaos. 

“Aktion Auktion” is direct support to asylum seekers who should long since have been granted humanitarian residence permit.

The opening of the exhibition will take place on thursday the 10th of september. From 16-21. 

Høkerboderne 8, Den Hvide Kødby, Vesterbro, Copenhagen.
