MIGRANT JOURNAL NO.2: WIRED CAPITAL

MIGRANT JOURNAL NO.2: WIRED CAPITAL

Regular price €20.00 Sale

The contradiction between restrictions imposed on the movement of people and the acceleration in the circulation of goods, services, money—in one word capital—boosted by free-trade spaces and mechanisms is reaching new levels of paradox and absurdity. The spaces and frictions this contradiction creates will be the topic of Migrant Journal’s second issue: Wired Capital. From ‘iceberg houses’ in London designed for the ‘uber-wealthy,’ to the infrastructure of high-frequency trading, from ­Romanian agricultural workers travelling to Spain and ­Portugal every summer to pick strawberries while Portuguese workers harvest grapes in France, to globally-spread offshore accounts.
