Beschreibung

Over the past two decades, national and supranational institutions and the mass media have played a central role in presenting the migrant struggle in a sensational way, spreading an unjustified moral panic and relegating migrants themselves to spaces of invisibility.

Building on recent theoretical debates in migration studies around the so-called «autonomy of migration» – which sees people on the move as individuals with self-determination and agency – this book reframes migration in the Mediterranean, and specifically around the island of Lampedusa.

In particular, the book explores how activist and art forms have become a platform for subverting the dominant narrative of migration and generating a vital form of political dissent, by revealing the contradictions and paradoxes of the securitarian regime that regulates immigration into Europe.

The analysis focuses on works by, among others, Broomberg & Chanarin, Centre for Political Beauty, Forensic Architecture, Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen, Isaac Julien, Tamara Kametani, Bouchra Khalili, Kalliopi Lemos, Zakaria Mohamed Ali, Maya Ramsay, Giacomo Sferlazzo, Aida Silvestri, Ai Weiwei, Lucy Woodand Dagmawi Yimer.


Federica Mazzara is Senior Lecturer in Intercultural Communication at the University of Westminster. Her research interests lie in the interdisciplinary fields of migration studies and cultural studies. She has published widely on the literature of migration in Italy, theories of intermediality, and the visual arts as a form of political resistance. She has also curated art installations on migration, including Nothing is Missing by Mieke Bal, and is currently co-curating the exhibition Sink Without Trace (June-July 2019, P21 Gallery), which focuses on the issue of migrant deaths at sea.
