Paths to Utopia

Image by Erik Ruin.

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.

Ruin’s image is taken from his forthcoming book-length collaboration with Cindy Milstein entitled “Paths Toward Utopia”. It imagines that much-anticipated moment when the border walls have finally fallen and everyone can sit together simply as fellow human beings. “Our histories of separation still surround us, as rubble and ruin, but no longer define us,” Ruin said. “Let us all yearn, and work, for that day.”
