Immigrants Don’t Steal, Billionaires Do

Image by Jesse Purcell.

Migration Now! was a 2012 print portfolio co-produced by Justseeds and CultureStrike (CultureStrike is now part of the Center for Cultural Power) which explored the social, cultural, and emotional facets of immigration.

Based on a work completed for the Pittsburgh Biennial, this print addresses the need to think about global capital in relation to migration. The gold razor wire represents how the 1% hide themselves from popular critique, creating a security culture of fear by portraying immigration as a destabilizing economic force. In fact, it is the ever increasing concentration of global capital that is destroying communities and spreading poverty across the globe, not new neighbors seeking a better life.
