More than 200 artists and activists from all over Europe and the Mediterranean are expected to meet for an hybrid academy project: FADAIAT*// BORDERLINE ACADEMY will link 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.

In respect of "Effects Causing Causes" I would like to submit Jacques RanciÃ¨re's ELEVEN THESES ON POLITICS, where I would especially like to underline the 9th theses, which I consider to bring together some of the resistances the academy has been working on the first two days: "The essential work of politics is the configuration of its own space. It is to get the world of its subjects and its operations to be seen. The essence of politics is the manifestation of dissensus, as the presence of two worlds in a single one."
