Throughout November and December of 2018, I have been traveling within Mexico, the United States, and Germany as part of a project which attempted to combine multidisciplinary practices to counter-map the purported ‘Global Migration Crisisʼ, too frequently described as ‘a permanent challenge to the 21st-century states and world orderʼ (Ignatieff et al., 2016).
This has resulted in a collection of the portraits of migrant individuals and families who agreed to be photographed. I asked them to draw a map of their experience and to comment it. The result is a participatory representation of individual experiences to reintroduce the personal narrative, and to counter- map the mainstream depiction of contemporary migration.
