About the course:

Borders seem to be everywhere. However, some borders are more visible than others due to the way they are designed. Some borders operate more heavily than others due to their distinctive material qualities and some are more lethal than others because of the way they operate. Some borders operate not only to repress but to produce different kinds of subject, wealth and capital, and they do so due to their specific design and materiality.

This interdisciplinary course takes you to an inquiry of and intervention in the materiality of the geopolitical, urban and technological borders of the contemporary.
