If there is a political dream of the border today, it is like anti-virussoftware:   con- stantly scanning traffic, identifying threats, quarantining, disinfecting and silently isolating risks so that all those flows which we are told to value can continue to circulate and proliferate. A technology which, because the „threat" is constantly morphing, must achieve a condition of permanent updating.
(Wiliam Walters in conversation with Marion von Osten, Genealogies of control, project migration)

On the basis of films / film fragments, different strategies of in/visibility regarding border and migration will be analysed and discussed. Which images of establi-shing and transgression of borders are being produced? Who speaks for whom and from which point of view? How can the contradiction between ilegality and visiblity be made productive? How are films produced in the tension of art, film and activism? And with which impact are they used?

Samples of films by Domenico Distilo, Pieter Geenen, Farida Heuck, Harun Farocki, Ulrich Seidl, Zelimir Zilnik and others
