Limits, crises, taboos… frontiers. It takes courage to push back frontiers, master crises and break taboos. In the exhibition pavilion “Viv(r)e les frontières – Experience the frontiers”, which was a multi-layered space, dramatised audio-visually, the focus laid on moments of crossing over a boundary. Boundary situations of our individual and collective experience, culture and prejudices became experienceable, and the visitors crossed borders, hiking over the ridges of their own emotions. Inside the pavilion, the visitors stepped into a media-enhanced narration space, which could be experienced in seven stories of bordercrossing. Life-sized images of people, who each turn out to be the protagonists of boundary situations, were displayed on 28 screens.
In the 28 cabins behind these screens, extremely condensed audio dramas let the visitors become the subject of a dramatic situation that also picks up on a socially explosive topic. Soon, the human individuals who had been acting in isolation from each other passed over the boundaries of their action framework and began to interact, to form groups, societies – a world. The following dramatic showdown extended space in its dimensions and made it a walk-in film that connected 28 projection surfaces to a single large 360° screen.
