Nos(otros): Art Questionging Borders

We draw lines around everything, we create barriers and borders and barricades, we build walls and fences, physically, socially, culturally, economically, sexually. Human nature defines the world around us in contexts of in/out, safe/scary, home/foreign, and this system is what allows us to understand the things around us. But what do these lines we draw mean, what do they imply and how do they impact our visions and hopes for our world? In a transnational society, a country of borderlands, how can we negotiate difference? What is your home, your identity? Who has permission to define you/me/them? Can your identity be defined by a number, a nation, a map, a culture? What separates you from others? Do you need that divide?
