This paper addresses the visual discourses generated online, specifically on social media platforms, about the current forced migrations. It examines the narratives generated through works of art presented on Syria.Art, a FB page which displays primarily the work of displaced Syrian artists. It argues that these visual discourses are focusing primarily on the initial memories of the displacement, and intangible heritage and its transmissions are prominent components of this process.
