Borderline

Borderline portrays parts and people of Poland that are often rendered invisible; their everyday lives, commitments, their initiatives and hopes, but also their worries and fears.

The project – for which I ensured the editorial direction – was created to shed light on the (g)local problems they are faced with, but also show just how similar the lives of young people in different European countries can be, regardless of location.

Through eight multimedia features, the cross-border teams explored Poland’s border cities and their relationship to neighbouring regions. Because at the end of the day, stories don’t end at borders.

The Borderline Project was awarded the Spinelli Prize 2019 and finalist of the prestigious Grimme Online Award 2019.
