Border Crossings: Performing, Vol. 41 No. 3

Vol. 41 No. 3 / Issue 161

We are here; we make our way and every day we perform the life we have — in different ways, for a multitude of reasons. We assert an identity on our own behalf or to attempt to make societal — changes; entrenched racism as one ongoing but urgent and critical example. We identify harmful institutional practices and with analysis, parody and critique set about to inform and make systemic changes. Or we perform to question and celebrate beauty; we make art that reminds us that everything begins with ideas.

The artists, the topics, the work presented in this issue, PERFORMING, do that.
