"It is precisely at the moment where one thing becomes something else that the action gets really exciting. That’s where the exchanges happen: chemical reactions, fistfights, osmosis, infections, kisses. Surface to surface, separate entities meet and make a border. The relation changes, the border changes. One thing to count on: it will never stay the same. Given the alternating violence and richness of borders, what strategies can we develop to better work with and across them? As cultural producers, how do we navigate this territory in order to create politically relevant work?

As part of SKOL’s new summer internship, Gina Badger, Adrienne Mak, and Amy Novak are inviting proposals to participate in a six-day intensive development and creation workshop that will culminate in a collaborative exhibition. Participants in the workshops will be asked to prepare a presentation for a panel, help come up with activities and fieldtrips, and collaborate in creating the exhibition."

The workshop series will take place in Montreal from July 10 to 16; the exhibition will run from July 18 to August 14, and will be followed by a publication.

For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.

We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
