Visible and invisible divisions in the third episode of From the Moon
In this Episode 3 of From the Moon, we are going to be “Crossing Borders” referring to a much-used figure of speech when looking at the globe. But rather than looking at borders as the traditional divisions between countries, nation states or cultures we are going to attempt to find out what these demarcations, these artificial lines, these separations really look like from our human and often personal perspective.

"There are, let's say, what is normally called "Digital divides", between areas of the world that have access to extremely efficient digital infrastructures and areas of the world which don't."
In Frontiers: Visible and Invisible, from demarcations in the Amazon to data front lines on our smartphones and under the oceans, we look at the visible and invisible frontiers that continue to affect billions of people.
David Plaisant, host of the From the Moon podcast, discusses these issues with Amiri Hangama, artist; Rabih Mroué, actor and director; Thyago Nogueira, curator and Head of the Contemporary Photography Department at the Instituto Moreira Salles in Brazil; Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, architect and curator.
"I hope my work could project a more hopeful voice in order to encourage a future generation of Afghan women to bring new representations of the East into being, not for the western viewers, but actually for themselves and for their own communities."
