10 years of borders in constant flux
At the crossroads between architecture, landscape and geopolitics, the exhibition “Frontière, histoire d’une transformation, 2006-2016” showcases 10 years in the life of a region that has been in constant flux since the expansion of the Schengen Area in 2007 and the suspension of border controls. From a survey of the region’s border infrastructure in 2006 to the documentation of the return of borders from 2015 onwards, the exhibition draws on the long-term work of Atelier Limo to explore the various stages in the transformation of this 3,000 km frontier at the heart of Europe using images and sound.
Consisting primarily of large-format photographs (A2 to A0), the exhibition also includes texts, maps, film clips, an interactive database and a video installation.
Produced by the Franco-German research institution Centre Marc Bloch, the exhibition was displayed in Berlin, in the European Metropolis of Lille (FR) and at the cultural centre of the University of Louvain (BE).
