Issue 38:3 | September 2018
Living in a time of the greatest mass migration of displaced people the world has ever known, this issue responds to ideas of human flow, trade and transit in the information age, and the role of artists as social agents, antagonists and radicants. The focus is on contemporary art from China, South Asia and the Pacific, and is loosely conceived as a response to the presentation of work at the 2018 Biennale of Sydney by Ai Weiwei addressing the global refugee crisis.
