THE OTHER IS ONESELF (TOIO) is an initiative of Sébastien de Ganay mobilizing the artistic community and civil society with the objective of raising public awareness in different areas: sustainable development for social progress and the strengthening of human rights and democratic values through artistic creation.

THE OTHER IS ONESELF is an exhibition, an auction and a publication, a film programme and a conference.

In cooperation with Bernhard Cella, the comprehensive publication aims at providing a memory of our time and of an extraordinary project. The text brings together articles and testimonies from academics, novelists, journalists and filmmakers, who have lived through the situation of forced exile from the Second World War to the present day on different continents. This is accompanied by a curatorial commentary, an exhibition catalogue and an auction overview.
