Migrant Journal Issue 4 – DARK MATTERS€20.00
A six-issue journal exploring the circulation of people, goods, information, and even fauna and flora, around the world and the transformative impact they have on contemporary life.
ISSUE 4: DARK MATTERS
If darkness is the absence of light, or the absorption of photons by a surface, it also constitutes a counterpoint that creates voids and leading lines. Darkness is what remains hidden. It is ugliness, criminality, hatred, oppression, colonialism. But darkness also embodies both beginning and infinity—a breeding ground for alternative thinking, dubious exchanges and non-normative pleasures.
In this fourth issue, read about the migration of psychotropic mushroom across the deserts of California, the decolonisation of money, the use of artificial intelligence to determine asylum seekers origins, hear about centuries-old peoples from West Africa living deep in the forest of Suriname or the “kamikazis” smuggling petrol from Nigeria to Benin.
