A migration system breaking all European borders is a research based on the strategies adopted in the last decades by the European Union to protect the spontaneous migrations of the fauna. While facing a tough political debate on borders control and migration, Europe is adding a fine layer over the existing infrastructural network: a layer made of ecoducts, bridges and monitoring devices, built to cross highways and national borders and meant for animals but often used by humans. These bridges constitute a structure that allows animals to cross human-made barriers safely.
The idea of connecting all over Europe – trying to organise the fauna’s migration – represents a paradox in reference to the contemporary events regarding the United Europe. A migration system breaking all European borders, making use of the structure organised for the fauna, aims to interrogate on the structure of our contemporary Europe and the elements that constitutes it.
