Claiming Common Spaces V: No One’s Land

A festival on borders and communities
Performance, dance, discourse

Claiming Common Spaces, the annual program series of the Alliance of International Production Houses, took place from February 9-12, 2023 at Künstler*innenhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt am Main on the theme of the future of internationality. The fifth edition focused its gaze on the “inter” of nations – borders and borderlands – as well as on communities that do not organize themselves along nation-state lines. In performances, panels, concerts and workshops, activist, scientific and artistic approaches explored possibilities of international coexistence beyond nation-state principles.
