Stories of Borders

"Stories of borders" brings together my work on borders and migration in Greece. From the transit state in Patras to the fragmented lake of Prespa, from xenophobia in Athens to the detention centers at the edges of the European fortress, they speak of elusiveness: borders are not just lines but they move, changing by marking bodies, walls and memory. Both the at the EU's gateway and a fortified outpost, Greece is at the centre of the media spotlight. The various themes propose a perspective to look back at this territory through six years of research along its borders, with the people who live and cross them. The images and stories bear witness to the absurdity and cruelty of these physical and intimate barriers.
