What is the Beyond the Borders exhibition?

The exhibition ‘Beyond the Borders’ intends to interact with an undocumented minority group- based in or -oriented project in Metropolitan city London. The 21st Century’s borderless nations have shifted the conception and lives of the world population which has resulted in ambiguous identities and unsettling difficulties determining mulptiple origination cultures. To understand something of this ambiguity, artistic collaborations in neighbourhoods can reveal invisible phenomena. The most important aspect of ‘Beyond the Borders’ is its reversal of power relations.
