Product description

Abstract
"We live in an age of increased mobility. The circulation of people, culture and commodities forms the hub of our global culture, but where does this freedom of movement take us? In this collection of essays, artists and writers unpack and argue ideas surrounding the presumed benefits of mobility. Through art works, photo essays, autobiography and cultural theory, contributors question the pleasure of travel and the desire to move, relocate or adopt new identities and lifestyles. The resulting, multi-faceted collection takes us on a journey encompassing Hong Kongs Californian housing communities, Romanias faux migrants, the cultural politics of food, flights of fantasy, the home, hybridity, paradise and Switzerlands Goa Party scene. In examining how travel both defines and erodes identity, this book prompts us to ask when does freedom from location become dislocation, the ability to escape an inability to belong?"

Textured clear plastic coated paperback covers.
Unmarked, very good condition. Bindings firm. All pages and illustrations clean, crisp and clear.
