Anxious Borders

Anxious Borders is a project that gives voice to populations in “declining”, neglected urban areas. It comprised social science research workshops, artistic production of research results and exhibitions whose aim was to foster dialogue about pressing questions for local communities. Anxious Borders brought together ethical, engaged research with aesthetic practice. It brought a new perspective to the phenomenon of migration looking from/to the future to/from present. The project workshops took place in Mersin and Berlin.
