Virtual Frontiers - (in)visibile lines in a European landscape
Inspiration for this meeting came from a chat over a glass or two in Ballyliffin. Our German and French friends were interested in the idea of borders, what it can mean nowadays, and how this translates in the landscape. The frontiers have often shifted between French Alsace and the Pfälzerwald area of Germany, and this seemed like a good place to explore these ideas.
The meeting took place 10-14 June 2004, in the border landscape of France and Germany. We stayed in the village of Lichtenberg, which is situated in the Alsace region, in the northwest of France, close to Germany.The programme was based on visits and activities focussing on (in)visible lines.
A report & pictures of the meeting will be published on this site.
