dc.description.abstract This thesis analyzes the art of six global migrants with whom in-depth interviews were conducted. The thesis examines imposed names and identities of global migrants and the way global migrants respond and interact with those names and identities. It argues that global migrants use their art to create transnational spaces and challenge traditional concepts of community and identity. By addressing issues such as statelessness, securitization, assimilation, and othering in their art, the artists challenge the nation-state system. Likewise, by fusing different cultures and artistic forms together, the artists create transnational spaces that challenge the nation-state system. en
