Border Lines brings together a network of artists, architects, and others whose recent works are engaged in original forms of transnational social activism. The exhibit includes manifestos for design proposals, performance art videos, and development programs. Technologies, politics, and territories come together in projects involving the Saharian Region of Mali, Brazil, Byelorussia, Transnistrie and Europe. Border Lines scenography draws continuity between each design proposal and creates a space of discussion – an “activated in-between” – developing a specific critical position regarding the borders as the ultimate area of possible cross cultural and social exchange. The exhibit adopts the idiom of a separating line, transforming it into a viable space for communication and a generative network interface. As a part of Space for Human Rights, this network of projects seeks to contribute to the development of Human Rights by extending the field to new territories and linked practices, reassembling and contributing to a global culture of Human Rights.
