Borderline Offensive

Laughing in the Face of Fear 2017–2020
Borderline Offensive is a transnational+transdisciplinary artistic platform, exploring new relationships between art, humor and intercultural dialogue.

We feel that real interaction and equality between people is not possible without sharing the absurdities and obscenities of life that make us laugh (together).

We use art and humor to broker dialogue between locals and outsiders about sad or difficult stuff and hope to make daily life in Europe (and outside of it) more peaceful.
