Across Borders

17 November to 29 November

Across Borders is a global, collaborative and intercultural initiative which believes in design as a tool to break down borders and create a positive impact on society. In a world in which 272 million people live outside their countries of origin, Across Borders vindicates our cultural identity, diversity and wide variety of points of view, analyzing in depth our differences and similarities through design. Borders are meeting points, not barriers; crossroads where we can all meet to imagine a better destiny.

In the 2020 edition, Across Borders connected over 50 recognized female designers, illustrators, calligraphers and typographers from 30 different countries, resulting in a collection of 30 posters which can be acquired on line (www.acrossborders.es) until 20 December, with the aim of raising funds to donate Dignity Kits to refugee women.

The participants include Tina Touli, Astrid Stavro (Pentagram), Asuka Watanabe, Marta Cerdà, Irene Pereyra (Anton & Irene), Lupi Asensio (Two Points), Maria Montes, Maria Fabuel (Domestic Data streamers), Kaoru Akagawa, Nadine Chahine, Rendani Nemakhavhani, Jing Wei, Dora Balla, Rachel Joy Price and Camila Rosa, among others.

Across Borders offers a hybrid proposal which blurs the boundaries between the physical, digital and virtual, and where the following activities can be enjoyed:

  • Exhibition of collaborative solidarity posters at the Disseny Hub Barcelona
  • Immersive experience of Virtual Reality Painting in two sessions, in which two artists will work on a common virtual canvas. The work will be shown in streaming, we will connect with Tatiana Halbach (Desilence) from Barcelona and Soraya Syed from London.
  • Online dialogues with the following participants in the project: Sol Matas and Lucienne Roberts, Lara Captan and Lisa Huang, Tina Touli and Asuka Watanabe, Jane Bower and Liron Lavi Turkenich.

All the activities are free of charge.

Across Borders is an initiative of the Mayúscula design studio, which is commemorating its 10th anniversary.
