Session #1: Translating Geographies of Displacement
constructs a transnational architecture for conversations and collaborative research projects between artists, writers, and researchers across multiple global sites. Migratory Times is an online archive and journal that documents and builds on a year long project (2016-2017) by the Institute of (im)Possible Subjects. The project engages artists and researchers in projects and events that emphasize the times and spaces of human migration in and from a Global South perspective. The Migratory Times online space documents these projects while also building on them, inviting new works by artists, writers and researchers. The online sessions last for three months, with the inaugural session commencing on March 8, 2019. The sessions are punctuated by events, including online conversations with artists and authors, and invited commentary on published essays.
