Additional Information:

‘This book breaks with any conventional notion of borders. It offers borders between and among people, among things, affects and truths; borders in space, in memory, in travel bags and personalities; borders proliferating, challenged and sustained. Artists in the midst of this, mediators across and inside a contested, creative but... violent and promiscuous cartography of European instability. Uncomfortable at home, but not at home, translated, not translated, art/not art, waste/value - this collection does not miss a trick.’
John Hutnyk, Professor at the Centre for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths University of London

‘Breaching Borders is an exceptionally rich, diverse and challenging anthology that brings together those who are deeply involved and committed to rethinking assumptions of migrant identity as “waste” across many discourses, art practices, biennials, bioart, technology and disciplines.’
Janis Jefferies, Professor of Visual Arts in the Department of Computing, Goldsmiths University of London
