Reflection on border

Parc Moynier, Rue de Lausanne, 1202 Genève, Genève, Geneva
 
What is a border? What is it for? For whom?

Does a border really exist? Or does it exist more in our mind?

Geneva shares a border with France. How does it look? Does it make significant divisions in terms of light, landscape, people's life-styles and mentalities between the two countries?

I am planning a one-year project probing the rhetorical questions about border in general and the borders surrounding Geneva, through on-site walk, drawing, painting, photos/videos, writing, picnic and discussions.

Our first Meetup will take place by the lakeside of Geneva, which is not really at the physical board around Geneva, though. We are going to have picnic, read texts about border, talk about the project, sketch landscape for those of us who loves drawing, and/or take photos / videos.

Please bring and food (preferably vegetarian or vegan) and drink for the picnic.

Please also bring some texts about borders in English or French to be read and shared with everyone.
Some examples: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/oct/19/top-10-books-about-borders
http://culturacolectiva.com/migration-books-stories-borders/

Then we'll have reflections and discussions.

Finally, we'll plan the project together.

I'd like to document the event with photos and audio recording devices. Please let me know if you have any concern. Hope to see all of you!
