This article analyzes the link between urbanity and «precarity of place» for noncitizen populations, based on evidence drawn from the transnational activities of Burmese migrants in two global cities (Bangkok and Tokyo). First, the article draws on the literature on precarity and global cities to detail the complexity of urban spaces in relation to migration, and draws on understandings of political mobilization to explain homeland activism among noncitizen populations. It then focuses on Bangkok and Tokyo, respectively, and demonstrates how Burmese migrants of varying precarity use or renounce urban structures in each city. The article concludes that precarity does not necessarily reduce activism in the homeland, but it can change its appearance. Urban structures, to a greater or lesser extent, influence that relationship.

1A simple set of cyclical relationships explains why such clear theoretical and empirical links have been established between urban geography, migration, and transnationalism. Cities attract migrants. Migrants are more likely to engage in transnational activities than non-migrants. Transnational activities are easily supported by the infrastructures offered by cities. Thus, it is easy to understand why a highly skilled worker who could obtain a work visa for Tokyo, for example, would choose to do so, how she might frequently engage in transnational activities such as exchanging information and/or resources with friends or family back home, and why a place like Tokyo would help facilitate such exchange. However, it is less clear why an immigrant without a work visa might choose the same path. That is, the effect of precarity on urbanity, migration and transnationalism is less clear.

In the previous forum we got to see practically two trends, both very active: one that followed the evolution of the collections and exhibitions, and another that followed the evolution and expansion of its containers.

If we see that it is not working well, let’s make a poll to merge the Museo Nacional del Prado from the category Art and culture with the thread Salón de Reinos: ampliación del Museo del Prado from the category Buildings in general.

In my opinion the Salón de Reinos should have its own discussion as a work, for the time being. And continue here with the other milestones, such as those of the exhibitions or the announced «inclusive» reform of which I think not much more is known than what came out in the press.

I have seen the video of the presentation of the exhibition and I must recognize that the director has been barbaric with the answer he has made to the journalist of El Pais, who always tries to seek scandal and controversy. Magnificent exhibition in all senses.

What do you think? Anyway, if this is a real Caravaggio (it will have to be cleaned, as it is very dirty and with oxidized varnishes, studied in depth and its provenance studied), do you think that the Prado will be able to acquire it?

I am sorry to tell you that the final facade is the second one, which exposes the old brick facade of the palace. One of the reasons given for such a decision is that under that large cantilevered roof visor as a colonnade, theatrical performances, etc. can be performed.

It seems curious to me that after so many extensions the unevenness of Goya’s door has still not been taken advantage of. And Moneo’s block has ended up being a wall with no more sense than seeing it from above.

Personally, the project that I like the most of those presented is the one that is going to be carried out. The day of the presentation of the finalists and the winner in the cloister of the Jerónimos I was present, and I was surprised by its quality in relation to the others.

I don’t see it that way. I think Foster’s project can be spectacular with the enhancement of the hall of kingdoms and a magnificent facade facing the Prado with the proposed treatment. Nothing to do with the deterioration it has reached.

I like Foster’s project very much. It recovers the south façade of the Palace, the Hall of Kingdoms itself is also recovered (the coats of arms of the vault are preserved and the Prado owns 26 of the 27 canvases), and the upper exhibition hall seems fantastic to me. I don’t know what they are going to do with the north façade, though.
