THE REGISTRATION MACHINE (JAN LEMITZ)
  

Beginning with the eviction of migrants from their makeshift homes in the ‘jungles’
of Calais in 2009 this project brings together images from a number of events
staged for the presence of the camera. Migration is made visible within a
political framework that makes use of the images it produces for the purpose of
governance and control. Migration is articulated in a visual language of ‘exclusive
inclusion’ . The registration machine challenges the existing hierarchies of the contents
established by this language. It has the potential to facilitate the cohesions
between images, their sites of containment and the boundaries inherent in the
visual landscapes of Calais. Contents become connectable and interchangeable,
migration is no longer inexplicable, remote and disconnected from local conditions.
It is rather part of an ongoing past and present of ‘turbulences’ that make people,
things and their photographs move around the world. The stories of those turbulent journeys are told across the archival spaces and their contents.
