“To the Unknown Migrant” is a series of ephemeral monuments throughout the world at places where the role of migrants in history and society have been ignored, erased, distorted, abused and forgotten. Leading up to December 18, designated “International Migrants Day” by the United Nations, Immigrant Movement International is mobilizing migrants, artists, academics, activists, and interested members of the public across the globe to develop monuments “To the Unknown Migrant” related to the issues and experiences of migration. These monuments will be a testimony that the poor treatment of migrants today will be our dishonor tomorrow.
