This panel will explore how photography and the mass media interpret the mobility and gender dynamics of tourists and migrants in Barcelona and Milan. Through case studies from two of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities, it will begin a dialogue on how local artists and journalists address tourists and migrants in their works—a discussion that would extend naturally to the Vancouver context.
