Beyond text?

Lydia Nakashima Degarrod

Manchester University Press

Lydia Nakashima Degarrod’s work, both as an artist and an anthropologist, concerns those moments where ordinary individuals share events of an extraordinary nature. We live in an era of massive displacement of peoples. The United Nations recently announced there are over fifty million refugees in the world, the highest since World War II. For her chapter Exile, the sorrow of time and place Degarrod, who herself is in exile from her homeland of Chile, engaged in collaborative art practice and worked together with nine Chilean political exiles to produce the art installation Geographies of the Imagination. The piece asks what is it to be an exile and know that home exists only in your imagination?
