// april’s magazine of the month //
the debut edition of this exciting magazine about the relationship between art + conflict begins with a look at ‘displacement’. in it there is the photography of Harley Weir who documented refugee camps in Calais in 2016 and here presents a selection of exclusive images. there are other great examples of photography in this issue, including Seba Kurtis’ various migrant subjects. there are also some super written contributions, including a fascinating piece from Finnish architect Milja Lindberg on how countries can accommodate migrants, and an interview with choreographer Akram Khan delves into nationalities, identities and home. the issue provides a unique aspect to a topic that has become one of the central moral issues of our time.
