MOTA 010 - Ambiguous Loss is the topic of the third in a series of migrant conversations in the 21/22 season. Ambiguous Loss is “a loss that occurs without closure or clear understanding” it was coined by psychologist Dr. Pauline Boss in the 70s. We borrow it as the topic to propose for discussion the uncertainty and isolation of loss that occurs where loss shouldn’t. Loss that is only known but not seen (because it is too far OR present but invisible), one that requires in some way our own imagination to ‘happen’, and a community to heal.
