In a time of heightened consciousness around borders, at a variety of scales from the geopolitical to the individual, this symposium aims to facilitate international and transdisciplinary dialogue on the subject of borders, both visible and invisible.
We are interested in the possibilities of sharing borders; of thinking through the ways in which borders rub up against each other, intersect, overlap, blur, can be crossed, and disappear. This might include but is not exclusive to, borders of the spatial, physical, cultural, social, historical, and the intellectual.
The symposium will take place on Thursday 21 February 2019 (from 9:30 am) at the Institute of Advanced Studies UCL with a keynote lecture from Professor Irit Rogoff (Goldsmiths).
The exhibition opening will take place on Thursday 21 February 2019 (from 6 pm) at the Slade Research Centre.
The exhibition is open to the public on Saturday 23 February from 10am - 6pm at the Slade Research Centre, UCL, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT.
Booking via Eventbrite.
