For those of you based within the UK, or within travelling distance to
London, I wanted to warmly invite you to an evening seminar we are staging
at Tate Modern called Border Crossings. The event features input from
Heath Bunting, Armin Medosch and Florian Schneider.
I'd be absolutely delighted if you could come, as would I'm sure, the
participants of the event.
If you're interested, drop me a line :-)

ABOUT THE EVENT
Europe's borders are increasingly frontlines of political and social
dissent. Asylum-seeking and political migration are some of the most
significant issues of our time. This discussion will explore the
contentious role of borders in Europe and beyond, and the way artists are
contesting these geographical and cultural perimeters.
Artist, Heath Bunting talks about his project, borderXings Guide, which
consists of 'walks' that traverse national boundaries without interruption
from customs, immigration, or border police. The project is currently on
display on Tate's website <http://www.tate.org.uk/netart/
German critic and activist, Florian Schneider will discuss the disruption
of European borders through civil disobedience campaigns such as Cross the
Border and No One is Illegal.
Writer and critic Armin Medosch will chair the discussion.
