On HOMInG’s seminar 54_21, last May, the editors of ‘Arts, borders and belonging’ presented the book (Bloomsbury, 2021), along with some contributors. The video presentation includes thoughts and comments from Maria Photiou, Marsha Meskimmon, Lydia Wooldridge, Nadia Garcia, Imogen Racz, Alexandra Kokoli, Eva Zetterman, and Aliya de Tiesenhausen.
Co-editors Maria Photiou and Marsha Meskimmon alongside chapters authors talk about the book Art, Borders and Belonging: On Home and Migration. This volume brings together essays that explore the conditions of global migration as a process that is always both about departures and homecomings, indeed, homemakings, through which the construction of migratory narratives are made possible. Although the volume is centrally concerned with how recent and contemporary works of art can materialize the migratory experience of movement and (re)settlement, it also explores how the curating and exhibition practices, at local and global levels, can extend and challenge conventional narratives of art, borders and belonging.
