new borders

today I was reading this article on an Italian newspaper in which it defines portaerei Cavour, an Italian military vessel, as the “last border of Europe”. this boat rescue migrants in the mediterranean sea

read the article here in Italian only, sorry!

aside from the debate on migration, this interests me as I am collaborating with the European University Institute, whose research in anthropology focuses on the borders of Europe. In particular my work is part of the “EU Border Care” an anthropological project that studies migration in relation to maternity. The project is funded by an ERC Starting Grant.

At the end of June 2016 as part of this project I will exhibit some of my work at the Closet Gallery in Villa Fiesole
