Proclaimed in 1992 by Swedish artists Carl Michael von Hausswolff and Leif Elggren, the Kingdoms of Elgaland-Vargaland (KREV) consist of all border territories: geographical, mental, and digital. Although there is nothing new in questioning the supposed neutrality and scientific rigour of geographical lines, which legitimise frontiers as containers of those ideologies linked to the territoriality of the nation-state, various recent developments have pointed to the urgency of finding new ways to locate or map an increasing number of intermediate spaces arising from the hybridisation, superimposition, and crossing of peoples flowing between more stable territories. With contributions by Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Magali Arriola, Adrian Notz, and HÃ¥kan Nilsson.
