Sat, 19. May 2018, 15:00-16:00 Say Shibboleth! On Visible and Invisible Borders Public guided tour through the current exhibition (in German)

The exhibition presents the work of international artists who critically reflect and explore different aspects of the history and present of borders. Some of these borders are permeable and others fatal, some are visible and others reinforced by cultural codes, language tests and biometric markers. Borders determine life and death, defining  “identity” and “otherness”. Located just a stone’s throw away from the banks of the “Old Rhine”, where in 1938 refugees tried to reach Switzerland, “Say Shibboleth!” explores the contentious history and present of border making and unmaking.   More information about the exhibiton  More information about the festival Emsiana
