DescriptionProfessor Berghahn was invited by the European Cultural Foundation to contribute to the 16th ZEMOS 98 Festival in Seville. This year’s Festival theme was Remapping Europe and the focus was on the representation of migrants in the media and their memories in transit.
The encounter brought together artists, social activists, journalists and academics who, in a series of creative performances, working sessions and public conversations, explored three themes. The first day of the encounter was devoted to Hacking the Veil through challenging dominant media representations of immigrants.
Daniela Berghahn acted as Teller, conveying the main findings of collaborative working sessions on Day 1 to the general public of the ZEMOS 98 Festival. One of the key issues explored with regard to Hacking the Veil was how we can challenge and deconstruct images of immigrants in dominant media discourse.
