42: Immigration Nation

whitopia_v02

So I was cleaning my dusty table covered in all sorts of papers, cobwebs, stuff and I found some old sketchbooks and drawings… This sketch is part of a dossier for a unit called Senses of Place when I was a first year. I drew it in response to this┬ádocumentary of SBS about the history of immigration in australia and about the white australian policy. Really interesting, controversial and eye opener. Explains why I still meet racist people in trains, bus, public places, anywere.
