FADAIAT*// BORDERLINE ACADEMY took place in Tarifa from June 17th to 26th, 2005. The old castle of "Guzman El Bueno" built in the 9th century hosteed a series of workshops, seminars, public events, concerts, parties, screenings, shows, theoretical and practical experiments in arts, media and politics. Borderline academy also hosted the 6th and last D-A-S-H workshop.
More than 200 artists and activists from all over Europe and the Mediterranean met for an hybrid academy project: FADAIAT*// BORDERLINE ACADEMY links practices of producing art, culture and technology with current debates on movements, mobility, migration and precarity. It aims to shape new notions of collaboration and activism that reach out beyond traditional patterns of primitive networking, moral binaries and institutional critique.
The ten days event is designed in a strictly modular set-up: Individuals, groups, networks can plug into a common infrastructure that consists of meeting spaces, communication platforms, production facilities and local area networks in an extraordinary challenging and inspiring environment.
