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.
