Recensione di F. Mazzara, 2019, Reframing Migration. Lampedusa, Border Spectacle and the Aesthetics of Subversion

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Reframing Migration by Federica Mazzara, chooses the island of Lampedusa as a perspective window from which to observe the phenomenon of migration as the today West is experiencing it and above all is representing it. The choice of this "place of condensation" shows how both the space that is crossed and the bodies that cross it are objects of a manipulated media representation, but it also allows probing the possibilities of different representations through which the objects of the gaze can become subjects, indeed agents of aesthetic performance and subversive policies, even delegitimizing.
