In turbulent geo-political, social and technological times attention to the role of im|mobilities is important. This is both true in relation to mobilities as a diverse area of academic enquiry, but also in terms of what it means to make art related to mobilities and movement.The diversity of mobilities research, from the politics of migration control to corporeal acts of stillness and movement, provide insights that demonstrate crucial relations across multiples sites and scales of life, and across disciplines. The complex contextures of life and social order are made in and through the interconnected im|mobilities of people, goods, resources, particles, viruses, ideas, information and more. Turbulent times demand creative agility in art works and creative research methods that explore, for instance: the micro-mobilities of CO2, soil, and microbes, intentional and forced migrations, more-than-human mobilities of both animals and technologies, to transport systems from walking to flight, and interplanetary imaginaries of escape.This peer reviewed exhibition including 21 art works was curated by Kaya Barry (Aalborg University) and Jen Southern (Lancaster University) for the online conference Im|mobile lives in turbulent times: Methods and Practices of Mobilities Research, 8th & 9th July 2021.
