Oresund border_semantic assemblage_black

       By Christophe Sohn, Department of Urban development and Mobility, Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER) May 2015   Abstract Various critical and scholarly works have underlined the multiplicity of borders, or the idea that borders mean different things to different people. This paper discusses the potential of the concept of assemblage for better understanding the ontological multidimensionality intrinsic to borders. An assemblage is understood to be a heterogeneous and open-ended grouping of elements that do not form a coherent whole that helps explain…

They reach deep into the very fabric of societies, structuring and regulating daily routines as well as long-term aspirations.

L’art aux frontières | Jean Cristofol

Ce texte est celui d’une conférence prononcée en novembre 2012 dans le cadre du BRIT (Borders Régions In Transition) à Fukuoka, Japon. Le point de vue que je voudrais présenter ici tient à la place que j’occupe dans le groupe de recherche de l’antiAtlas des frontières. J’enseigne la philosophie et l’épistémologie dans une école d’art. Je ne suis donc pas un spécialiste des frontières, mais de la théorie de l’art et je m’intéresse plus particulièrement aux relations entre arts, sciences et technologies. 1 -     Pour…
