    DESCRIPTION

    Migrant Journal is a six-issue publication exploring the circulation of people, goods, information, fauna and flora around the world and the transformative impact they have on space.

    In this Issue

    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.
