The unknown story of asylum seeker deaths in Ireland


PODCAST: Artist, activist and former asylum seeker Vukasin Nedeljkovic has been trying to find out.

He has created Asylum Archive as a way of processing his experience from living in a Direct Provision Centre while seeking asylum in Ireland. How many asylum seekers die in Direct Provision Centres and what happens to them? What are the causes of death while under the care of the State. Vukasin’s powerful body of work includes memorials to those who died within the system and examines the effects on those caught in Direct Provision limbo. [image from asylum archive]
