African migration to China has become more prominent in academic as well as popular discourses. While economic and political meta-narratives dominate the public debates, trajectories and life-stories of individual migrants often tend to be ignored. UturnAsia is a collaborative project, set up by Manon Diederich and Heidi Østbø Haugen and some Gambian migrants, which attempt to chronicle Gambian migrants´ particular experiences in Asia, documenting their journeys with video monologues, self-written letters, photographs and drawings.
