“Work, Migration, Memes, Personal Geopolitics” is being published within the framework of the Parallel Events accompanying Zurich’s Manifesta 11 devoted to the theme “What People Do for Money: Some Joint Ventures”. Unlike the Manifesta concept, the contributions to this journal relate the changes that have come about in working conditions and circumstances since the early 1990s directly to the multifarious migration movements in Europe. To this day, changes in working processes and migration movements are usually regarded as mutually isolated “problems”. However, we see the connection between them as a geopolitical reality rooted in political and economic power structures, aspirations to hegemony and the battle for resources, a reality that already began to take shape in the harbingers of neoliberalism. Whereas in the eighteenth century the impoverished working class still found itself directly confronted with a wealthy upper class, today these lines of conflict traverse the globe horizontally.• Dorothee Richter, Tanja Trampe, Eleonora Stassi (eds.), Work, Migration, Memes and Personal Geopolitics, # 30, Zürich 2016, ISBN-13: 978-1533448392 Contributions by Giorgio Agamben, Sadou Bah / Alternative Schule, Zürich, Anne-Julchen Bernhardt, Esther Eppstein, Grandhotel Cosmopolis, Martin Krenn, Fany Flores, Maurizio Lazzarato, Philipp Lutz, MigrafonA, Melanie Muñoz / Lysistrada, Rayelle Niemann, Roberto Nigro, Marion von Osten, Katharina Morawek, Almut Rembges, Mathias Rodatz, Bea Schwager / SPAZ, Vreni Spieser, Petra Tomljanović, Erol Yildiz, Želimir Žilnik, Tim Zulauf.
