the first European festival on creativity

2016 Programme

Event #18

Chiara Saraceno

Families confined and without borders

Family exists simultaneously both in the restricted space of normative definitions and in the more undefined space of actual relationships and experiences, which often defy regulatory boundaries. This tension is heightened by the correspondence of normative spaces with national boundaries, wherein laws governing family relationships can vary from country to country and family ties may not always be “exported” beyond national borders. Yet at a time characterised by a strong geographic mobility, individual families' boundaries are mobile not only from a relational point of view, but also in a national and geographical sense.
