Produktbeschreibung
Borders of states, borders of citizenship, borders of exclusion. As the lines drawn on international treaty maps become ditches in the ground and roaming barriers in the air, a complex state apparatus is set up to regulate the lives of those who cannot be expelled, yet who have never been properly 'rooted'.

Revealing the logic of government bureaucracy shows how they replicate difference from the inter-state level to the communal and the personal.
