EXIT #32 considers the phenomenon of migration and the way it is represented in photography and video.
"Pictures can show us the pain, the horror, in a most direct way, even without the need to rummage through misery." Rosa Olivares.
"The representation of migrations swings between two risks. That of post-modern nomadism has been to de-politicise and de-socialise travel by declaring legal and illegal migrants, artists and intellectuals travelling with their works, tourists, exiles fleeing dictatorships and economic migrants who have lived in a democracy to be all equally de-territorialized. (...) The other risk is that of the artists who, wishing to show the magnitude of capitalist exploitation, align oppressions, uprootings and penuries which are hardly comparable." Néstor García Canclini.
"To de-exoticise the other, to de-estrange him, to extract him from his orbit of otherness, to do so sharing the same space, to accept that he is among us, that he is a construct of ours and that ultimately he is us, is also to recognise ourselves in strangeness and precariousness, in volatility, in transit, in exodus." Rogelio López Cuenca.
"Watch out locos! Godzilla in a mariachi hat could be an Al Qaeda operative." Guillermo Gómez-Peña.
"Movement, time, memory, and contact, will clarify (...) how video and the migratory can illuminate each other, and together, embody the concept of migratory aesthetics." Mieke Bal.
