Creating Boundaries, Breaking Borders. How does one live well in a city almost designed to make you feel isolated, tired, anxious and poor? Artists/activists/teachers/amateur thinkers Sam Siva and Sam Berkson lead a discussion on how to live radical lives in a neo-liberal city. How can we establish the boundaries that we need to feel secure, while transgressing the borders that capitalism subtly imposes to more easily manipulate us for the purposes of profit and control?
