"Continuing with our yearlong “Art of the Built Environment” explorations, this issue of ART PAPERS looks to Borders and Barriers. Borders serve the hegemonic imperative to etch a line between an us and a them. Barriers enforce/reinforce the divide between insider and outsider. As such, borders, and the constructed barriers that inscribe them, serve to mediate difference toward legibility. They often get drawn where difference is most contested—girded when the ruling order is threatened, militarized when a threat grows stronger. Borders possess a logic that is reproduced at multiple scales and through multiple applications—whether the fence that divides neighbors, the walls that demarcate contested or occupied nation-state divides, or the politicization of the spaces between us."

—Interim Editor Sarah Higgins, "Letter from the Editor," ART PAPERS Fall 2018
