Migration as Avant-Garde


In MIGRATION AS AVANT-GARDE, Michael Danner examines the new ways in which migrants are pursuing their hope for a better life. The term “avant-garde” stands for progress and the way of a pioneer. Driven by the desire to give their lives meaning, and guided by their own integrity, migrants bring new perspectives and points of view to our society. The origin of his work was the reading of the 1943 essay WE REFUGEES by the political philosopher Hannah Arendt.
