"Migrant Journal" is a six-issue publication exploring the circulation of people, goods, information, fauna and flora around the world and the transformative impact they have on space. Based in Europe, MIGRANT is published and distributed independently. Since its launch as a niche periodical with a print-run of 800 copies in October 2016, "Migrant" has sold more than 9,000 copies. Commended for Best Launch of the Year and Best Magazine of the Year at the 2017 Stack Awards in London, the indie publication has been exhibited in London, Vienna, Venice, Zurich, Basel, Tokyo and is available from bookshops spread over three continents.
Lluís Alexandre Casanovas Blanco is a New York-based architect, curator and scholar. He was the chief curator of the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2016 together with the After Belonging Agency, and he is currently a PhD Candidate at Princeton University, and a Helena Rubinstein Fellow in Critical Studies 2017-18 at the Whitney Independent Studies Program.
LinYee Yuan is the founder and editor of "Mold" (thisismold.com), a critically-acclaimed editorial platform about designing the future of food. Through original reporting, "Mold" explores how designers can address the coming food crisis by creating products and systems that will help
feed 9 billion people by the year 2050. In addition to the website and a self-published bi-annual print magazine, "Mold" hosts events and exhibitions, works with next-generation food brands, and commissions products from emerging designers.
Isabel Seiffert is Co-editor and Art Director of "Migrant Journal" as well as one half of Offshore Studio, the Zurich-based design practice she founded with Christoph Miler. Their projects have a strong focus on editorial design, typography and storytelling.
Justinien Tribillon is editor of "Migrant Journal," a six-issue independent publication looking at migration in all its forms. An urbanist and writer, he regularly contributes to "The Guardian." He is a researcher at Theatrum Mundi and teaches urban studies at University College London.
