Images of migration shaping migratory policies

0 out of 5


Imagination is not an innate talent. It is an inner and outer continuum born from the images that we see. This can be problematic when the images dealing with a foreign population are confined to a narrow range of motifs. Nigerian novelist Chimanada Ngozi Adiche pointed it as the ‘danger of the single story’. This talk will address Western collective imagination of migration by revealing its imprint in various visual fields (e.g. cartography, contemporary art, fashion) and by seeking ways to diversify its expression.
