Migration, decentralization, and decolonization, conflicts, crisis and newly ordered structures, experiences of exclusion and inclusion, of neglect and carelessness: the programme focus Border Effects dedicates itself to overall as well as everyday borders and the role, status, and agency of the body in the process. What are the conditions of our being-in-time, as dancers, choreographers, researchers, pedagogues, and as a public? How can we use our specific practices in order to act within material and immaterial bordering processes and at the same time contribute to shaping them? How can we take a position and critically question the dynamics between arts, society and the public? Border Effects is conceived as a working format, taking its starting point in choreographic, physical, and movement-based concepts, aiming at bringing up questions related to processes of producing and representing borders. Following two introductory lectures situating the discussion in the field of border studies as well as in an ethical and political perspective, it unfolds around four dialogical encounters whose respective themes are then dealt with in subsequent workshops between artists, scholars, and experts from related fields. It questions how dance and choreography might provide knowledge, experience, and physical as well as imaginary space in order to address borders and bordering processes. Border Effects is concluded by a discussion round in which the gained insights are exchanged.
