Exile is a Hard Job is an ongoing project Nil Yalter began in 1975, featuring a series of ephemeral fly posters of immigrants painted over with the slogan 'Exile is a Hard Job'.

Exile is a Hard Job contemplates the often challenging experience of being an immigrant ignored and ostracised in a foreign country. The title of the work is drawn from a poem by Nâzım Hikmet, an important Turkish poet who spent many years in exile in Russia. To this day, Exile is a Hard Job has been staged in Valencia, Metz, Mumbai, Vienna, Istanbul, Brussels, Cologne, and New York.
