In the contemporary scenario of mass migration across the Mediterranean, translation is increasingly connected with the image of hospitality, both as a practice and a metaphor. Using the tools offered by the paradigm of Multimodality, this essay explores the way in which recent migrants’ counter-narratives in the visual arts are symbolically “translating the margin” and are giving voice to lost narratives. German photographer Kevin McElvaney’s 2015 Project#RefugeesCamera and Ethiopian director Dagmawi Yimer’s 2014 video-art Asmat/Names will be analyzed, both linguistically and visually, as attempts to achieve a more ontological narrative. Both art works tried to bring the experience of migration closer to people’s everyday lives by giving a voice to those who usually go unheard and by eliciting an emotional response.
