The last years have seen a proliferation of borders, made of concrete and metal, security techniques, laws, deportations but also made of exoticism and racism. Theory claims borders today have grown from lines in the outskirts into borderscapes. They can be found in the spatial and social division of cities as well as in the minds and bodies of people. Borders consist of multiple barriers, that structure our languages, behaviours and beliefs. Nevertheless borders are surmountable: “You show me a 50-foot wall – and I’ll show you a 51-foot ladder.” Every border is a place of struggle, a contested and at the same time productive zone of transition. What are these transformative spaces in-between, where “the old is dying and the new cannot be born.”? Is a borderless world a utopian or a dystopian vision? What will the borders and barriers of the future look like?

The performative and philosophical discourse format Future Now! asks for daring escapes and options in times of a proclaimed lack of alternatives.

Carla Küffner is working in the field of migration studies and analyzes (non-) deportation practices for her PhD. She is curious about border regimes, freedom of movement and what is needed to overcome borders, barriers and frontiers.

Nour Shantout, currently studying (textual sculpture) at the Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien, works around social barriers, and heritage. Through concepts of failure she questions the different aspects of protection and preservation.

The talk is moderated by Johannes Siegmund and held in english language.

In cooperation with Depot (Vienna) and engagée.
