Refugees’ Lockdown. An art-based research project

Refugees’ Lockdown is an art-based research project organized by the Visual Sociology Research Group, the Oblò Association and the Controluce photographic club.

The goal is to create a visual archive and a collective art work on the experience of the pandemic for women and men seeking asylum or refugees. All those who have spent at least one month in the Italian reception system between January 2020 and the end of the initiative (May 31, 2021) can send their visual stories of the pandemic; the project is not focused on health aspects, rather on the consequences the pandemic entailed on the daily life of asylum seekers and refugees.

Photographs, illustrations and videos are admitted.

More information available ont the project’s website: www.refugeeslockdown.com

Debordering Europe. A new book about the Italian-French border

“Debordering Europe”, a new book about the Italian-French border in Ventimiglia is out. A collective works focused on how border works within the Schengen area, which provide a unique perspective and a critic insight about the lack of shrared responsability between EU member states, the EU common asylum system, and the respect of human rights. Furthermore, the authors – including our colleagues Livio Amigoni, Luca Giliberti, Luca Queirolo Palmas and Federico Rahola – have the merit of opening a discussion about borders and the role of migration control policies precisely at the moment in which “national sovereignties” seem to have become an unavoidable topos of politics, in every European country.

È uscito “Debordering Europe”, un nuovo libro sul confine italo-francese di Ventimiglia. Un lavoro collettivo incentrato su come funzionano le frontiere all’interno dell’area Schengen, che fornisce una prospettiva unica e una visione critica sulla mancanza di responsabilità condivisa tra gli Stati membri dell’UE, sul sistema dell’asilo politico nell’UE e sul rispetto dei diritti umani. Inoltre gli autori – tra cui i nostri colleghi Livio Amigoni, Luca Giliberti, Luca Queirolo Palmas e Federico Rahola – hanno il merito di aprire una discussione sui confini e sul ruolo delle politiche di controllo delle migrazioni proprio nel momento in cui i “sovranismi” sembrano essere diventati un topos ineludibile della politica, in ogni paese europeo .
