According to the primary meaning of emigration, this activity is some kind of voluntary movement, but there can be many reasons why people choose to emigrate. Emigration means outward movement, migration, relocation, and whoever or whatever goes out somewhere does not stay inside. Still, it would be difficult to deny that the word connection “internal emigration” denotes something that exists. This term is primarily known in a political sense, but it also makes sense to talk about internal emigration if we think of very different degrees and ways of distancing oneself from political power.

Inner emigration (migration inside) is a metaphorical capture of the attitude when a person, in this case an artist, continues his work on a specific, inner path in such a way that he tries to perceive the heavy, even rather chilling world around him in a kind of refraction, as if to decode it in a counterpoint, showing such an inner contents that are important to him. This is not turning inward in the wrong sense, but rather a deep, pure turning inward, in which, by creating art objects and art ensembles, we turn towards the possibilities of understanding with the help of our own inner creative processes and tools.
