Did it ever happen to you to be stuck on one side of a border? Without choosing on which side you are? Did you ever dream of overcoming all borders? Not only since the rise of nation states, one often understands borders in its geographical dimension and as a potential for conflict and distress. On top of that, there are plenty of other lines of division: social, ethnic, religious and ideological. Heinrich Böl Fondation is glad to invite you to a discussion on Borders with graphic designer Nadine Bekdache, co- founder of the transmedia project KnoozRoom Tamara Qiblawi and the Jordanian satirist Kamal Khoury from the Jordanian magazine al-Hudood. Together they will shed light on the different dimensions of borders in the Middle East .
