Terminal

The airport was one of the iconic symbols of the modern age and is now a site where the contradictions and problems of the contemporary world circle and land. It has become a battle line in issues around globalisation, border control, state security, and individual freedom. Flight itself has lost its romance. It is now recognised as an environmental threat, subject to flygskam (flight shame).
