”It´s not easy to make history” consists of a series of portraits of people who have stayed at Raumyr transit reception center in Kongsberg. Honerud spent much of the spring and early summer 2016 at the along with asylum seekers and employees. In addition to long conversations, she interviewed them in cooperation with sociologist Jon Hovland.

The work addresses how a person preserves his or her identity in a situation where most identity markers are removed, and the time you are in, is a waiting room before the future can begin.
