Mapping Schengen Art – new entries

Here is the latest instalment of Schengen Border Art, an ongoing project in which I map the multifarious ways in which the Old Continent’s (real and imaginary) frontiers have been represented/performed/subverted through creative performances. Enjoy!

Launching Schengen Border Art

Test-1024x636

After a long gestation,  Schengen Border Art has seen the light!

As anticipated in some of my previous posts, the purpose of this online project is to virtually map contemporary artistic and other creative expressions whose main subject is Europe’s frontiers, be it the ‘real’ boundary demarcations in the political, social, economic realms or their imagined projections, and in the people who cross, build or challenge them on a daily basis. These artistic performances can take different forms: photographs, paintings, videos, sculptures, novels, poems, land art, simulations, installations, theatrical and other types of ‘live’ performances. The number of these artistic expressions has mushroomed in recent years as a result of the growing interest in (and controversy over) European borders and especially those comprising the so-called ‘Schengen area’.  In the site you will find a selection of this body of work, regularly updated, with information about the author and her/her creative piece(s), and an interactive map to locate them within Europe or beyond.. Check it out (schengenborderart.com), and help expanding it by suggesting new entries!
