These artists’ work is based on the fundamental premise that “migration is creating a completely new, globalized woman. Most often from poor countries, women have to migrate to find a way of survival.” They leave their land, families and cultural roots to face an often-harsh welcome in their new surroundings. Through video, photos, audio materials and objects, these artists researched the cities where they live to create a multi-media installation—part photo documentary, part interview, part installation.
