'Migrating Identity - Transmission/Reconstruction' was comprised of an exhibition at Arti et Amicitiae in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and a parallel program that included 30 visual artists, filmmakers and theoreticians. The images and installations addressed the (re)construction of identity within a broad framework. Artists were chosen because of their multiple cultural backgrounds, their social engagement and the way in which they presented issues of (im)migration, the construction of identity, marginality and otherness in their work. This book features works shown at the exhibition accompanied by a series of essays. It also contains a transcription of the forum Conferencing Transmission/Reconstruction held on 4 June 2004 and moderated by Sebastian Lopez, director of the Gate Foundation Amsterdam.

Note: Only participating artists of Asian descent are listed below.
