Let’s assume that frontology is the science of all fronts, borders and limits.
Note that researchers and activists from the International Group of
Research and Action in Frontology have made it their subject of study, with
the goal of radically changing the way we think about the world.
And let’s attend their first conference.
A unique and absurd conference which overlaps the real and the fictional.
Based on accurate and reasoned reports, sketches, maps and
videos, the audience is invited to understand and participate, asking themselves
without pessimism some key questions:
– Why are they all piled up here?
– Why is it empty there?
– Is this good ? Or not ?
Under the direction of geographer and director Frédéric Ferrer,
Vertical Détour continues to explore upheavals of the world and joyfully sail to the borders, there
where friction and porosity occur and act.
