  12. <![CDATA[<p><strong>&#40;b&#41;orders</strong> was a one evening event which explored the relationship between the present shifting political geography instigated by countries constructing border fences and the migrants and refugees who now mainly live their lives suspended in demarcated zones in a precarious state of survival or even violently displaced within their own country. According to researcher, Elisabeth Vallet, from Quebec University in Montreal, there are currently <a rel="external" href="">seventy walls</a> placed around the world to protect national borders, compared with twelve in 1989 when the Berlin Wall came down.  The Ukraine, Estonia, Austria and Slovenia have either commenced constructing a border fence or are considering building one. Greece, Bulgaria, Britain (Calais), <a rel="external" href="">Turkey</a> and Hungary have already completed their border fences. The dream of an open united Europe is collapsing and its border-control-free Schengen Area is in practise, no longer legitimate. We are now living in times where goods can travel more freely than people, and mega corporations dictate <a rel="external" href="">state policies</a> and border controls.</p>
  14. <p>Responding to these concerns, NeMe presented two artists whose work examines the present issues of national borders and refugees. </p>
  16. <p><b>Tony Maslic</b> spoke about a video he created for the exhibition <a href="">nEUROsis</a>. Filmed over a period of three months at the edge of central Athens, the video is a modest witness of how international and local authorities are failing to solve the humanitarian and economic crisis. The unacceptable situation in the refugee accommodation centre appears as if the EU is maintaining these conditions to either intentionally deter more refugees from arriving, or simply because of incompetence due to a lack of will to find a humanitarian solution.  Both reasons are alarming, revealing a crisis of ideology rather than a crisis of finance, where people are instrumentalised into political tools, with the demise of human rights. Open borders are transforming into high voltage charged fences protecting xenophobia, isolationism, corporate colonialism and exploitation, all within the constitutional framework of an increasingly divided European Union. </p>
  18. <p>In the course of  the past three years, <b>Aron Rossman-Kiss</b> has undertaken a series of field trips along Europe&#8217;s borders and refugee routes, creating a body of work incorporating the voices and experiences collected during these journeys. Drawing upon his experience, he will evoke the artistic and ethical questions that can arise when working in such situations and the challenges one can face when working with themes already saturating mainstream media. </p>]]>

  27. <![CDATA[<p>Over the last ten years, Australian video artists have developed a refreshed attention to the sublime and the subliminal in their creative practice. While media and communication technology has offered a change in the way artists create, archive, show and access their work &#8211; from affordable, higher quality cameras, and easily accessible file storage to the instantaneous distribution from social and digital media platforms &#8211; the tools of image making may have advanced, yet the poetic and conceptual enquiry behind such image production has remained constant. ‚Äč*Sublime/Internal/Subliminal* brings together a cross selection of emerging and established artists who reflect this constant.</p>]]>

  43. <item><title>Not(es) on participation</title>
  44. <description>
  45. <![CDATA[<p>Instead of writing on participation perhaps the thing to do, here, is participate: set aside academic pretenses or defenses and contribute as meaningfully as one can manage in a personal sense. By stepping in to the fullest extent of one&#8217;s skill, humility, experience, and available time, without withholding or construing things behind which to hide. I begin with some notes on the participatory context for the piece you&#8217;re reading. I then briefly outline a perspective on participation as an exercise of consensus. This perspective is articulated as a personal one, although it is theorised in social-scientific terms. In the third part I put down some auto-ethnographic notes and a local, micro-historical perspective on the politics of participation as I read these around me, in the arts, in Cyprus, and a little beyond that. And I finish with a reflection.</p>]]>

  54. <![CDATA[<p>A conversation between Lanfranco Aceti  and Ioannis Michaloudis who presented their current work and understanding of the cloud and the molecular in an atomized cultural and scientific context. This is particularly important in a moment in which atomized and fractured societies, like nanoparticles, aggregate and disaggregate according to internal and external stimuli, in increasingly ruthless movements which shift and change like clouds in the winds, according to multiple and disaggregated criteria.</p>]]>
