This talk proposes to analyse the notion of “movement” as a whole concept. First, as in relation to visual arts and video, in particular; then, in regards to the current political climate and the global migratory flows. Being one of the most urgent issues of our time, the Immigration crisis and its representation has been preoccupying artists, museum’s directors and collectors alike. Often explored by practitioners through the medium of video, the social and political implications behind shifting borders have also been in the agenda of important public and private collections – when they did not coincide with the very reason for their constitution.
