Anni Kangas together with Daria Krivonos, Safina Khidjobova and Zarnigor Omonillaeva has published a new article in the Antipode journal. The article analyses the social reproduction of post-Soviet migrant labour with the help of artwork by Olga Jitlina and Anna Tereshkina and by Mahpora Kiromova. The artwork deals with the effects of migration on family relations in Central Asia and the South Caucasus. In the analysis, artwork is braided with strands of social reproduction theory to examine the transnational household as a set of relationships that enables post-Soviet and global capitalism to draw value out of unwaged work and to reproduce the differentiated (i.e. gendered and racialised) labour force.
