Joe Horgan's People That Don't Exist Are Citizens of a Made-Up Country features in The Irish Post with a wonderfully written and personal article penned by Horgan himself, depicting his own experience of migration and identity.
People That Don't Exist Are Citizens Of A Made-Up Country is an exploration of family emigration in the context of global migration. It seeks to display the increasingly universal reality of displacement as a lived experience. In a sequence of interlinked chapter essays migrant reality is married to one family's history.
As Horgan points out conflict and experiences of migration and identity still "remains the story of our time, whether it be through Trump’s Wall, Brexit’s psychological one, or orange bodied people bobbing in the water."
