Collective Dictionary: Xenia

This booklet is an outcome of the “Ancient Journeys and Migrants” course at the University of Exeter, thinking together with Campus in Camps. In exploring the ancient stories and remains of those who moved through a world without maps, borders, or nation-states, it reveals the shifting attitudes to the outsider – the guest and the host – exposing how fleeting are the conventions that take shape in the here and now.
It was also a starting point of our reflections while approaching Lesvos, to work at the Office of Displaced Designers.
