The state is involved in all aspects of one’s life, including birth, sexuality, taxes, and death. One’s movement through physical space has also been something states have long attempted to regulate. Border fences are a testament to the state's ambitions on this front. What was once a frontier became a cartographer’s line, which in turn, became a concrete wall. This board explores the often contested borders that separate states, and the strategies migrants employ to move across them.
