Abstract: This paper reviews my artistic practice that led me to my final master‟s project: Legacy: a gift of property. This video installation is based on interviews of a specific group of family related immigrants that question different aspects of their migration from Peru to Sweden between 1973 and 2008. The interviews were conducted in a neutral manner and throughout this paper I try to create a relevant context around the times of each individual emigration and immigration in general, as well as a review of the different aspects of migration seen as the construction of personal identity throughout migration. For a detailed stream of thought through the process of developing the art piece you can go directly to Appendix D - Monologues page 94.
