Curated by Magda Gonzalez-Mora
Shifting Shelter establishes a thoughtful introduction to the politics of transcultural migrations in the oscillating global system, at a crossroads where displacement manifests itself as one of the predominant geopolitical characteristics of living generations. Perunovich teaches us how to confront a place in our lifetime where past, present and future have lapsed, understanding the phenomenon of migration as a continuous and dynamic line of destabilization, of rooting and uprooting, which manifest a need to link past with the current. Perunovich’s reflections on her own life and the human condition universally, attempt to counteract and resist the setbacks of the present and offer a key contribution to discourses related to cross-cultural migrations.
