International Conference May 31 – June 1, 2022

Images of Migration - Bilder von und über Migration

Event location: Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung Berlin

The international conference of the project Migration Lab Germany at the University of
Hildesheim will provide diverse insights into how images about migration are generated,
used and transformed in social discourse and what role different contributors can play in this
process. We bring together scholars and cultural practitioners, civil society projects, schools,
museums, theaters and memorial sites to take a critical and forward-thinking look at the
production and reflection of images of and about migration from the perspective of different
disciplines. This exchange will address the following questions:
(a) How can contributors in the above-mentioned fields learn from each other when it comes
to the use of images (photos, films, videos, drawings) in the process of generating knowledge
about migration, integration and related diversity?
(b) How can educational, social and cultural sciences learn from each other with regard to
the use of images in the dissemination of research results on the topic of migration?
(c) How can academia, civil society and culture work together to create new images of
