I live in two countries, which entail at least two dominant forms of conceiving organized society. These two countries entail a multiplicity of societies, cultures and identities on them, that do not remain contained but communicate with each other and with other worlds. I have discovered that I do not live in two worlds, but in a multiplicity of liminal spaces from where I can observe how fragile and futile it seems the dominant construction and policing of borders and difference.

Video by Paul Alexander.
