If someone builds borders, it’s because they want to protect themselves. But what from? Do borders offer protection from “the others”, or are we not instead producing “the other” by creating boundaries in the first place? 


Only man-made borders create states, nations and thus groups in which everyone speaks the same language, celebrates communal religious festivals, finds similar music harmonious, and sees shaking hands as friendly. Boundaries are always an act of will and action, an act of community that creates personal and collective identity/identities.


Is our need for demarcation intensified, for example, when we join a new class or school or even go to a different country? What borders are important to you? What borders do you want to overcome? Many artists have asked themselves these questions and focus their work on the possibilities of drawing borders with reference to their identities, their bodies, their nations or their cultures.
