The Future of gastarbajter: from the migrant guest worker to migrant and back

conversation with Boris Buden
Gallery Nova, Zagreb

Manuela Bojadžijev is professor at the Institute for Sociology and Cultural Organisation, Leuphana University Lüneburg, and is a Member of the Berlin Institute for Integration and Migration Research (BIM) at Humboldt University, Berlin. She specializes on migration and racism in Europe, and on cultural theory. Her research currently focuses on issues of the changing conjunctures of racism in Europe as well as on mobile labor and logistics in a digitized economy. Her lecture analyzes migration as one of the most relevant dimensions of Europeanization, but also the crisis of Europeanization, which we are currently experiencing. The lecture and conversation question why many important decisions in the European area seem to be made on the basis of migration, or rather, of the way in which the impact of migration is transferred to a political context.
