Europe, North Africa and the Middle East surround the Mediterrean Sea which has become an “in between”: refugees cross it from the Maghreb states or Turkey in an attempt to reach Europe. Conversely, Europe is upgrading the barriers, creating real and electronic walls. In the installation, RISIKO by Ruth Schnell, a chalk drawing of the outline of the Mediterranean shows her engagement with the European border regime. A robotic vehicle shows the borderlines as an integrated 3D pressure pin prints the building blocks of the "Fortress Europe". Events unswervingly follow its programming.
