The­con­tex­tual ex­hi­bi­tion Stanstead Pro­ject, or How to Cross the Bor­der, ar­tic­u­lates it­self around the theme of the bor­der, seen as an ar­chi­tec­tural arte­fact that be­comes part of a land­scape that has an im­pact on cit­i­zens’ mo­bil­ity all across the world. In Stanstead, a small bor­der town lo­cated in the East­ern Town­ships, re­cently re­in­forced se­cu­rity mea­sures have dis­rupted the ev­ery­day life of lo­cal peo­ple.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will be pre­sented in two parts : first, an in-gallery pro­ject will gather works by Ur­sula Bie­mann (Zurich, Switzer­land), Chris­tian Philipp Müller (Swiss, lives and works in New York and Ber­lin), and An­dreas Rutkauskas (Mon­treal, Que­bec). The in-gallery ex­hi­bi­tion is a site to re­flect and ex­change upon is­sues re­lated to bor­der pol­i­tics around the world. Fea­tured are: maps, pho­to­graphs and video pro­duced by An­dreas Rutkauskas on the site of Stanstead; Chris­tian Philipp Müller’s Green Bor­der, pre­sented in 1993 at the Venice Bi­en­nale for the Aus­trian Pavil­ion as well as the re­cent video Burn­ing Love; and the sin­gle-chan­nel videos Per­form­ing the Bor­der and Euro­plex by Ur­sula Bie­mann.
