Art Is A Migrant

I said, in response to a question from Italian scholar, Emanuele Monegato. His interview with me is in the new issue of Altre Modernità (Other Modernities), the journal of the Cultural Studies section of Università degli Studi di Milano.

My favourite phrases from his description of my work:

In addiction to such a Kenyan origin.....

peculiar oeuvre that is Migritude....

the only way to portray Migritude is to use a net of definitions describing its multiple souls.

You can download the full conversation - scroll down the page to "Interviews".
