Borderline, the frontiers of peace


Photographic exhibition at the park of the Lieu d’Europe
May 2 to June 8 2018

The European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018  celebrates this heritage as a central element of cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue. The Borderline project puts the spotlight on an aspect of the European heritage that is not talked about a lot: the inner borders.

Equipped wit a GPS, the photographer Valerio Vincenzo traveled 20.000 km alongside the European borders. His pictures show Europe as a place of free exchange and peace and pose the question: Actually, what is a border?

The public is invited to engage offline or online, using the hashtag #FrontiersOfPeace, to share their experiences with borders and peace, using texts, photos, poems or  drawings…

The best contribution are awarded prizes (books, games…) and will be published in a shared publication. The exhibition is also accompanied by pedagogic workshops in schools.

Italian-french photographer Valerio Vincenzo was born in Naples in 1973. After a career in strategic consulting and coordinating humanitarian projects, he works as an independent photographer since 2004, regularly collaborating with national and international press. His works have been awarded the Louise Weiss-prize for european journalism in 2013 and have been exhibited at the UNESCO-headquarters in Paris, as well as in numerous other european cities.
