The title Freedom of Movement refers to the ability of citizens to travel, visa-free, outside their native land. As neo-nationalist and populist political movements gain traction in the West, usage of the phrase “freedom of movement” has become loaded with connotative associations. How much freedom do we have, and how much do we allow others? Interpreted poetically, the notion of “Freedom of Movement” also refers to the body itself: its ability to move, take action and have agency.
