"Toward a Migratory Turn. Art History and the Meaning of Flight, Migration and Exile"
Handbook of Art and Global Migration. Theories, Practices, and Challenges, edited by Burcu Dogramaci and Birgit Mersmann, De Gruyter, 2019, pp. 17–37
The contribution as part of the international Handbook of Art and Global Migration. Theories, Practices, and Challenges offers a comprehensive study of the connection between exile/migration, art production and art theory. The essay points to the need for an anti-linear, multi-perspectival and horizontal reconceptualization and recanonization of art history in a transnational or transcultural perspective (which also would have to include a historiography of migration in art), for the primacy of a mobile or migratory aesthetics and a kinetic theory of the migrant image. The goal is to open discussions toward a migratory turn within the discipline.
