Abstract or Description

This “Border Topologies” themed section draws a series of texts that explore what design and artistic research could contribute to an understanding of border conditions in a context of rising inequalities, conflict, and climate change. The common aim of the articles is to interrogate contemporary borders through the practices that produce them by focusing on how the border appears and reappears at different scales, in unexpected places and configurations. In doing so, some of the articles collected here insist on a planetary scale that questions the geopolitical as an organizing construct.
