In the World : Action and Fabrication by and on Behalf of Undocumented Persons

Författare

Summary, in English

In this article, we analyse initiatives by and on behalf of undocumented migrants through Hannah Arendt’s notions of action and fabrication. We take three initiatives from the city of Malmö, Sweden, as our empirical examples: a musical, a relay, and a tent-camp action. By showing how these initiatives involve not only action and speech but also a fabrication of things, including works of art, we emphasise how these initiatives contribute to establishing what Arendt calls a space of appearance. Besides addressing the interrelation between action
and work, we also address the importance of work in changing relations between things of the world. We argue that this way of looking at action is relevant when wanting to overcome the problems associated with the inclusion/exclusion distinction. Moreover, our analysis allows for new understandings of how undocumented migrants release themselves from the circumstances of undocumentedness through political action.
