30.2 (2020)

This editors’ issue of Fabrications is primarily concerned with the anxieties aroused by migration. Aesthetic Anxiety, as described and dissected in this issue, refers to both the prevalent anxieties connected with migrant experiences of inhabitation, as well the anxieties of state protection. The collective implication of the work presented here under the banner of Aesthetic Anxiety is that an architecture of migration involves aesthetic production and that such production disrupts the visual imaginary of national cultures. The theme aims to expand the aesthetic field of reference by shifting its focus.
