The presentation will drift from questions related to extraterritoriality, boundaries, imposition of any specific ideology or language, as a point of departure to rethink political spaces, technologies, objects, epistemologies and their constructions. On this backdrop we will present our current research as well previous works while opening up a discussion on these quires.

Ruti Sela and Maayan Amir have shown their works internationally including the Sydney Biennal (2006), the Istanbul Biennial (2009), the Berlin Biennial (2010) and Manifesta 8 (2010). In 2009 Amir and Sela developed the 'Exteriority Project'. In 2011, they received for this project an award for young artists from UNESCO.
