Performing Borders: A Study Room Guide on physical and conceptual borders within Live Art 

This Guide explores the notion of border in relation to Live Art and the works of experimental artists that have been addressing issues around physical borders, with a special focus on the current European situation and its multiple crises. The Guide includes a theoretical introduction on the relation between Live  Art and social sciences’ border theories; a focus on how practitioners are responding to the current shifting European border landscapes through a series of interviews; and a list of resources on the theoretical notion of border, Live Art, and Europe available in LADA’s Study Room.
