WORKING MEN HAVE NO COUNTRY
This book is an essay of images and texts bringing together the work and researches of four artists: Krasimira Butseva (Bulgaria - United Kingdom), Guillaume Chauvin (France), Ziad Naitaddi (Morocco) et Sofia Yala Rodrigues (Portugal - Angola - Royaume Uni).
This book is a broad fresco made up of singular adventures and lives, from the October Revolution to the fall of the USSR and decolonisation. By re-drawing geographical boundaries outside the official narratives of the four areas of migration, we have tried to examine education, propaganda and racism in the political contexts of successive migrations, leading to the postsocialist and postcolonialist movements. The colonial symbolism which haunts the world today is revealed for what it is in our readings of the real and the virtual.
