Boundaries

The word Boundaries has three associations: spatial, social and conceptual, including just/unjust, oppression/liberation, and so forth. These physical, social and conceptual boundaries influence the design and performance of protests, also determining the resonance of voice and the character of spatial appropriation.

Acknowledging the varied practices of communication and notions of citizenship in today’s multicultural world, an array of cubical kiosks exposes the settings of specific protests from the 1960s on. These kiosks, jammed with photographs, books and documents, illuminate the differences and similarities of protests’ scales (local, national, international), forms (the repertoire of occupying space, linear, circular, focal) and types of events (singular, repetitive, etc). These different types of protests reflect both the diversity of urban space and the quality of space in terms of organization and planning, underscoring the ways in which urban space is used as the main actor in the social and visual production of protests.
