Custom Houses

Today, customs posts have been stripped of their primary function, they stand there like monuments bearing witness to both, a bygone epoch and border policy. They mark a frontier now transparent and fluid. Some of these places have vanished, others have been abandoned or transformed.

In 2007 Borderline invited artists to reinstate and reoccupy these abandoned customs offices, these border outposts between Luxembourg and its neighbouring countries, transforming them into places of artistic exchange.
