Abstract :
[en] Published in 2019, the Special Issue entitled “Arts and Refugees: Multidisciplinary Perspectives” gathered together a set of articles exploring the role of art created and performed by refugees settled in urban European contexts. More particularly, the articles studied the ways in which artistic practices foster the multidimensional integration process of refugees in the contexts in which they live, and how they inform and support solidarity movements and claim-making processes. The Special Issue adopted a broad conception of refugees—including forced migrants with or without legal status, coming from different countries of origin, having gone through diverse migratory trajectories and life experiences. All shared the performance of art and gave it specific meanings in their new living contexts. Similarly, the notion of art was understood in a broad sense, including diverse cultural and artistic practices and domains, and not only institutionalised ones. The aim of this second Special Issue on the same topic is twofold: on the one hand, the first objective is to deepen some specific crucial questions related to the artistic and cultural performances of refugees; on the other hand, it endeavours to expand the geographical scope of the analysis carried out in the first Special Issue.
