Deconstructing the Border

Year: 2017 Type: Print publication Languages: English Price: 3.00 € Format: 25,5 x 35 cm, newspaper Scope: 35 p., 110 images, color and b/w ISBN: 978-3-938515-68-6

What is the immediate impact of Border Regimes today? Usually excluded narratives are revealed while focusing on specific flashpoints: The growing barriers of Europe, the border between the USA and Mexico and the militarized eco-system of the Jordan River. As the contexts may be different, the issues and agendas of repression are often similar. Can border phenomena be examined as part of a larger, neoliberal agenda implemented through a war of images, habituating us to increasingly violent realities? Artists familiar with different border contexts have been invited to create and to present work at the nGbK.

The publication in newspaper format includes coloured images and texts contextualizing the artworks.
