Immigrants To Go: 2 Night Pop Up Installation by Alonso Galué

IMMIGRANTS TO GO makes us notice the presence of the other, the one that we don’t love, the one that we don’t want to recognize because we wouldn’t forgive ourselves if we understood why he is here or what caused his forced displacement to a new territory. Land that allegedly would offer a better quality of life perhaps, at the same time, limits immigrants’ bodies, their spaces and their will in their unpersonified lives. Labor immigrants are disposable existences swallowed by a social system and seasonal jobs.

GALUE has himself experienced this way of living, knowing himself as the other, feeling the brittleness of the labor system through the immigrant perception. It is an existence that daily consumes millions of anonymous people, within societies enjoying the pleasure of to-go services.
