Contest Calling 
Periferic Extensions 
Hack the Borderline 3.0 

-	Borderhack is a camp/festival, part of the chain of bordercamps "Kein mensch ist illegal", being Tijuana its host, in the Playas de Tijuana delegation, in front of the borderline, just when it goes down the sea. During three days , August 16, 17 and 18 of  2002 there’ll be settled a camping where several activities will take part, such as conferences, speeches, classes, photographic exhibitions, digital art and multimedia interactives, films and documentals projections, as well as computer area, where the festival will be in contact with the rest of the world by net, showing some of the activities and updating information on the web page. 


	If at the beginnings of the past decade, it was thought, ingenuously,  that after a line of militar governments, Latinamerican democratic institutions were consolidated as platforms to solve social , politic and economic problematics, at the end they were only useful to unveil the governments limits.

Psychological Frontiers 
“Vladivideos” led us know the dark ways between security organisms and the high camera of Perú, erasing the national hero image, starring ex president Fujimori, and being  induced by himself, to the public opinion.
 Social Frontiers
Failed strike showed us a Venezuelan society divided in two factions, one of each very illiterate, and the other pretty greedy.

Symbolic Frontiers
The posponed version of the Sao Paulo Biennal has left, as a result, the turistic mythification of a country used only to export exotic stuff, divided between the tv soaps and the Deep Brazil. 


You’re invited to the making of a project, if you live in Latinamerica and the Caribe. 

The project will be about phisical interventions inside a metropolitan context. 
These interventions, will have to unveil symbolic, social and psychological frontiers.
