The Home & Migration Issue

Within this issue we begin our exploration of the definitions, meanings and circumstances of Home & Migration. We begin to unravel the sprawling and extensive concepts of home and in turn, the effects and consequences of migration, whatever its length, composition, complexity and cause.

These concepts are vast in their interpretations and include the many kinds of movement of people, from migration of refugees, displaced persons, economic migrants and persons moving from others purposes, including that of family reunification. Acting as our introduction to these themes, the artists in this issue examine notions of home, how we conceptualise people and place, and the effects of migration both physically and psychologically. 

Our cover story by Griselda San Martin, looks at the San Diego-Tijuana border, one of the busiest crossings and meeting points on the US-Mexico border. Elsewhere Eli Durst documents his time in Eritrea, a country known for the highest numbers of fleeing migrants. Wes Foster writes about Michael Danner’s incredibly anticipated series, Migration as Avant-Garde. Plus stories from Charles Thiefaine, Lara Shipley, Alexander Chekmenev and Sem Langendijk.
