Formen der Migration
Migrant Journal is a six-issue publication exploring the circulation of people, goods, information, and even fauna and flora, around the world.
About Issue 3:
Seamless oceans and boundless skies deceive us as infinite spaces. Yet they are submitted to international laws, social and political dynamics, along with the intrinsic laws of nature. ‘Flowing Grounds’ explores these mobile spaces of death, pleasure, traffic and infrastructure: our most flamboyant and tragic issue to date.
In 2016, more people flew in planes than ever recorded in history. Technology has also enabled new developments to take place through the air, from drones to satellite communication. The sky host avid migrants: water particles, seeds and birds. Meanwhile seas and oceans have become a morbid stage to which nobody pays attention, where thousands die as they hope of a better future. The sea is also home to nomadic populations of humans and animals; a millennial stage for exploration, a source of food and life—and a contested space.
