fbpx Borderline Installation | Amman Design Week
4 - 12 October 2019
Event Type

Borderline Installation is an outdoor intervention that questions pop-up barriers and border-walls. Formed around a wall that breaks down into its modular segments, the installation creates an antithesis to physical forms of social separation by turning the wall into an equitable zone and an area for free movement in the public domain.

This installation is structurally verified by AK Habitat, and is produced by a community action grant supported by Fulbright and sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.
