(5 Ratings)
Johannes Wilm, an organizer and activist from Oslo, Norway, goes off to live in and study Douglas, AZ, a border town to Mexico, for half a year. At first sight, Douglas looks like nothing but a run... More > down company town - after the Phelps Dodge smelter left in the 1980s. Interestingly though, Wilm discovers that old modes of social stratification disappeared together with the jobs. This book has to be seen as a tribute to the progressive sides of the lumpenproletariat. "This is a well written, experience-near ethnography of marginality in every sense of the word: Douglas is literally on the margins between the USA and Mexico, it is geographically marginal, economically marginal and culturally marginal in the US context. Wilm weaves a convincing and compelling picture of the precarious, reckless and often paradoxical lives led by people in Douglas." —Thomas Hylland Eriksen, Professor of Social Anthropology (Oslo/Amsterdam)< Less

From April 20 to May 1, 2011, Institute for Infinitely Small Things divided the University of Massachusetts Amherst campus using a full-scale photographic reproduction of a section of the US-Mexico... More > border fence. This art installation used images of a section of a new vehicle border, installed in 2008, that divides the land of the Tohono O'odham, an indigenous tribe that has lived in the land long before the existence of the US, Mexico, the Gadsden Purchase, or Homeland Security. The fence sunders the community, disrupts ceremonial paths, desecrates sacred burial grounds and prevents members from receiving critical health services. Entitled 'The Border Crossed Us,' the Institute's project was a multi-faceted project that used the installation as a means to engage the campus of Umass Amherst and people whose lives have been affected by the fence. This book, with over 40 full-color pages of maps, photographs, and text, documents both the background of the project and its life on the campus of Umass Amherst.< Less
