silent speech, migratory gesture
Climate change, economic inequality and war have caused over 280 million people to migrate from their country of origin in just the last few decades. In hauntingly poetic and pointedly activist works, contemporary artists explore the geopolitics of migration. Bodies become the surface for writing, gestures evolve into map making, language comes under erasure. Producing a kind of silent speech, artists track tensions of visibility and invisibility, displacement and transnational movement in the lives of everyday migrants.
