The Fountains Of Za'atari - Inhabiting Without Belonging | Za'atari City Guide
The private exhibition space Collezione Maramotti in Italy presented in 2019 ‘The Fountains of Za’atari’, a multidimensional project from artist Margherita Moscardini, based on her research into refugee camps as urban spaces that are destined to last due to ongoing conflict. Her two-volume book by the same name aims to establish a system through which local governments and civic institutions can buy life-size sculptures reproducing 61 different fountains in courtyards at Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan, for display in different public spaces in Europe. Royalties will be paid to the original designer, thereby creating a virtuous system that supports the camp’s economy.
