Abstract

The session is a part of a twofold panel which discusses the topic of borders within the context of intercultural exchanges related to European-Asian and Asian-European travels. The first session focuses on the circulation of objects and materials, including textiles and coins, and technologies of artistic production as possible markers of cultural and religious borders or, on the contrary, as an effective device to cross and deconstruct these borders.
