The border between two regions, Upper Austria and Lower Austria, which is a fluid border in the Strudengau (Upper Austria) defined in the middle of the River Danube, serves as point of departure for discussing the manifold notions of borders in our thinking and acting, for possibly overcoming geographical, imaginary, symbolic and mental borders in the contested current state of our society in Europe and beyond. Even though this border is harmless in comparison to international borders and the growing "walled Europe" local residents are affected by it in their daily life due to different laws in Upper Austria and Lower Austria. Therefore this geographically local border point5s at larger issues.

Based on workshops and conversations with locals transparadiso developped a visionary, fictional, experimental dalog "across the border" in a collaborative process, including excerpts of the correspondence between August Strindberg and Frida Uhl (1893-1894). The Call Against Borders was performed with two large scale megaphon-sculptures (connecting to "Times of Dilemma") across the River Danube which constitutes the fluid border between these two regions in Austria.
