This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book develops an understanding of the problematics and transformative workings of migration and globalisation through contemporary art. It outlines how intensified globalisation and mobility have profoundly changed the discourses on art. The book traces, how in tandem with globalisation, the critical debates on identity politics and multiculturalism in the Western art world gradually paved the way for greater institutional recognition and visibility of artists with a migrant or minority background. It demonstrates that artists' interventions can be used as a critical tactic to navigate institutional structures. The book examines the nexus of forced migration, border control, securitisation and humanitarianism through the lens of some contemporary works of art that address the problematics of clandestine migration from Africa across the Mediterranean Sea to Europe.
