18.-26. September 2016
From the course program: "The field trip will start in Paris with a visit to Calais camps and international border, before we fly to Athens where we will visit different kinds of camps and self-settlements, and follow migration routes to the Macedonian border. We will meet with a variety of experts involved with the migration theme: migrants, human rights lawyers, architects, artist, and academics along the way. On the trip we will analyze and register the specific borders migrants encounter: from physical walls and barriers to invisible borders mapping social boundaries. We will discuss the spatiality of migration through the eyes of the migrant and the space they create in their situation, as well as the spaces created for them by state and international security and humanitarian organizations."
