For the month of March you can enter another borderland right in the middle of Radboud university grounds.
The Global Lounge, a place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee in the book shop, becomes a place for a visual border study. On the walls you find photos of the US/ Mexican border. On the tables you get invited into mind maps about that border as well as a border experience that takes place in our direct surrounding.

Location: Roelant’s ‘Global Lounge’,
