This Month’s Theme: “Global Borders, Global Migrations”

Hello Echo Parkers! I’m very happy to be with you this month curating a series of films and videos that engage with the topic: “Global Borders, Global Migrations”

To get us started, I choose a poignant video work by Ursula Biemann titled “Europlex.” The video documents a section of the North African border territory between Spain and Morocco, and explores how certain confluences and frictions between various flows and circuits of movement constitutes the border-as-territory. Like her other films, “Europlex” asks us to consider the relations between bodies, spaces, and technologies in order to better understand the operations and structures of contemporary power. Enjoy!
