Encounters, Together Apart

Kristina Borg
Guest speaker

17.02.21

Kristina Borg, Maltese artist and educator, uses participatory practices to tackle issues of space and society, communities and neighborhoods. In her interdisciplinary research-practice she spends time integrating into specific communities and devotes her attention to relationships between people. In dialogue with the community and/or the place, her work focuses on the creation of projects that involve experiential processes relating to socio-political issues in urban-collective spaces.

On February 17, as part of Together Apart — FRONTIER (cohort in English), we invited Kristina Borg as a guest speaker in dialogue with Andrés Knob and the artists of the cohort. The Maltese artist spoke about her project “No Man’s Land” emphasizing how the concept of border can be materialized in different ways and using various artistic languages.

Kristina Borg is part of the international community of ´ace, having been an artist in residence in 2019. During her residency here she developed a series of photolithography images that later became part of the edition of her book “Imkejjen u Rkejjen “.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
