Migrant Journal is a six-issue publication exploring the circulation of people, goods, information, fauna and flora around the world and the transformative impact they have on space. MIGRANT JOURNAL explores the circulation of people, goods, information, but also fauna and flora, around the world and the transformative impact they have on space. While migration is part of humanity’s genesis, it seems the phenomenon has become ubiquitous, happening faster, with complex ramifications. MIGRANT aims at exploring the relationship between these elements, events, journeys and spaces bound under the idea of ‘migration’ in all its forms, crucial to understand today’s society. In order to break from the prejudices and clichés of migrants and migration, MIGRANT asks artists, journalists, academics, designers, architects, philosophers, activists and citizens to rethink our approach to migration and critically explore the new spaces it creates.
Migrant Journal looks at migration with a resolutely interdisciplinary, prejudice-free approach, bringing together artists, philosophers, illustrators, curators, journalists, architects, academics, photographers. In under a year, the journal printing at 800 copies for its first issue released in October 2016 has turned into a great publishing success, read and distributed from Hong Kong to Amsterdam, Paris to San Francisco, with a current print run of 4,000 copies.
