Lost in Media: Migrant Perspectives and the Public Sphere gathers critical responses to the representations of migrants in the media in Europe through nine essays by prominent writers, artists and journalists. Ever since the 'migrant crisis' hit the headlines in 2015, migrant perspectives have been lost in mainstream media. If migrants do appear in media coverage they are represented as characters in other people’s stories, or as something other. This volume challenges this narrative of dispossession through essays by and interviews with artists, journalists and authors.

Lost in Media: Migrant Perspectives and the Public Sphere is conceived from the ‘Displaced in Media’ project and is created in cooperation with the European Cultural Foundation and published by Valiz. The book is edited by Ismail Einashe and Thomas Roueché and features contributions from Tania Bruguera, Moha Gerehou, Aleksandar Hemon, Lubaina Himid, Dawid Krawczyk, Antonija Letinić, Nesrine Malik, Nadifa Mohamed, Ece Temelkuran, Daniel Trilling, Menno Weijs, André Wilkens.
