MigAA volume, titled Migrating:Art:Academies:

The Migrating Art Academies (MigAA) project is an ongoing aggregate network of participating art academies, people and events. A radical departure from the traditional learning process within bricks-and-mortar, MigAA released a cadre of graduate art students for a series of mobile and located explorations that, literally, spanned Europe, from the Baltic beaches of Lithuania to the Gironde Estuary in France, the Tatras mountains of Slovakia and elsewhere. With public manifestations in Linz, Austria at the prestigious Ars Electronica festival, in Berlin at the Collegium Hungaricum, in Royan, France and numerous other places on the way, the students piloted their Media RVs (recreational vehicles) along the highways and byways of Europe.

The basic idea behind the project is to challenge the traditional and habitual artistic routines of the students in order to inspire their continued creative development. The Migrating Art Academies project is an attempt to juxtapose the digital, non-haptic, anonymous, collective, and virtual on one hand with the unique, corporeal, and individual on the other. The project concentrates on social and interpersonal communication and encounters between differing cultural habits. “The breach between locations are the breaches between the individuals’, as the Maître à penser of this project, Vilém Flusser, once stated in his writings on migration and nomadism.

Migration Institute University of Oxford

The International Migration Institute (IMI) is committed to developing a long-term and forward-looking perspective on international migration.

The Int

ernational Migration Institute (IMI) was established in 2006. It is a member of the Oxford Martin School and also forms part of the Oxford Department of International Development, where it is based.

It pioneers new theoretical and methodological approaches, working with researchers and policy-makers in the global South and North. Its aim is to advance understanding of the multi-level forces driving current and future migration processes.

IMI analyses migration as an instrinsic part of broader global transformation processes rather than a problem to be solved. Such understanding can provide the basis for policies designed to fully realise the potential benefits of migration for individuals and societies. We are interested in the following questions:

  • What stimulates people’s migration?
  • How do they undertake their journeys?
  • How does migration affect societies of origin and destination?
  • Can we anticipate future patterns of migration?

IMI has established collaboration with migration researchers across the world and is laying the foundations for research on some of the key challenges posed by migration in the 21st century.
