“We need to put an end to the idea of a border that defends and prevents. Borders must be permeable; they must not be weapons against migration or immigration processes.” — Édouard Glissant

This screening presents Édouard Glissant: One World in Relation (2010) by Manthia Diawara. In the work, the late philosopher Édouard Glissant discusses his theory of Relation and ideas of Creolization and Opacity. Glissant’s remarkable thinking about the limitation of borders is paired with the artists’ videos, Bite Work (2011) by Eamon Ore-Giron and No Room To Play (2019) by Minerva Cuevas.
