In 2016, two artists embarked a cargo ship and retraced a route of the Transatlantic Slave Triangle – Europe, Africa, the Caribbean – all the while contemplating the notion of home.

Rather, contemporary women's art practices provide a fascinating instance of women's eccentric experiences of the myriad effects of globalization.
