is a publication unveiling the imagery of migrants in European
media, produced in the framework of Remapping Europe
A Remix Project Highlighting the Migrant’s Perspective.
This investigative and artistic project explores the tools and
concepts of remixing media as a method to re-view,
re-investigate and re-consider prevailing imageries of migrants
in European societies. Four individual case studies of recent
media incidents provide the starting points for an analysis of
country-specific, cultural and historical contexts that influence
public perception of migrants and migration.
Remixing Europe is structured in four country chapters (Spain,
UK, Turkey, Poland) and one Macro chapter. The graphic
design uses a mix of style elements from newspapers and the
Internet: inserts, large quotes, web fonts, tags above the
articles, tag clouds, screenshots, film stills and press photos.
is a film catalogue, presenting the artistic projects of
53 media-makers from the four different countries which
are discussed in Remixing Europe.
A poster printed on both sides serves as the covers for both
publications. The front cover of Remixing Europe shows
a selection from 13,268 possible anagrams of the title. The
front cover of Remapping Europe shows a screenshot from
each film overlapping each other and forming a new collage.
The two publications were launched in April 2014.
