The Office of Migratory Perceptions, a Pop-Up

  • Comfort Station 2579 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

Join us as two artist collectives, Undocumented Projects and Documents Bureau, provide a critique on the power of bureaucracy through the creation and distribution of documents you didn't know you needed. From official-looking contracts, certificates and permits to resources on how to defend yourself and others from ICE raids, the Office of Migratory Perceptions is here to help you figure it out.

In partnership with Comfort Station and Dark Matter Coffee
