Journeys: How travelling fruit, ideas and buildings rearrange our environment

Publication, 20 October 2010

Over time, migrants have been linked to global issues such as poverty, development, and human rights. They are the most enterprising members of society and their number is growing by the day. Though the social or anthropological dimensions of migrations and movements can tell part of their story, the main focus of this research project is on the physical transformations such movement engenders.

A book of sixteen stories, Journeys: How travelling fruit, ideas and buildings rearrange our environment accompanies the CCA exhibition of the same name. The stories in the book are based on actual events and archival documentation, and continue the narrative explorations of the exhibition in a portable format.

Essays by Kozy Amemiya, Anders Bell, Giovanna Borasi, Ilaria Brancoli Busdraghi, Lev Bratishenko, Ian Chodikoff, Curtis C. Ebbesmeyer, Bernard L. Herman, David Howes, Serge Michel, Riitta Oittinen, Wouter Oostendorp, Maureen Power, Peter Sealy, Jouke Sieswerda, Jean Teillet, and David Theodore. Illustrations by Erika Beyer. Book design by ActarBirkhäuserPro.

Softcover, 304 pages. Published in English and in French. Co-published with Actar.
