This chapter summarizes Vilém Flusser’s biography through a description of essays that reflect Flusser’s identity as an immigrant, expellee, and intellectual nomad during his stay in Prague, London, São Paulo, and Robion. It begins by discussing events of Flusser’s life in Prague, from his birth to his forced exile in 1939, followed by a description of Flusser’s one-year residence in London during the start of the First World War. After London, Flusser moved to São Paulo where he married Edith Barth and fathered their first child, Dinah. The chapter concludes with Flusser’s time in Robion, France, where he wrote essays that often implied the concept of nomad life.
