    NAPLES - An exhibition inaugurated Thursday at the Casa Araba in Cordoba, Spain, examines the paradox of a world generally moving towards the removal of borders while men and women continue to create them as a universal concept with regards to politics, religion, nationality, family bonds, language, and more.

    The exhibition, titled "Limitless: Artistic (de-) construction of borders", was organised in collaboration with the Jordan National Gallery and puts the work of 16 Jordanian artists on display to explore imaginary borders, which cause people to see the unknown in "otherness" as a threat.

    The show's curators said the border is a boundary which unites and separates all at once, giving a feeling of security while building an "us" to seek out arguments of protection with regard to the "other," the one that lies "beyond," out there in the unknown.

    The exhibition brings together sixteen Jordanian artists, men and women whose works constitute a critical reflection upon topics revolving around the concept of real and imaginary borders created by human beings, including those which are social, political, natural, economic, gender-based, identity-based, racial, and otherwise.

    Curators said the exhibition has "the goal of promoting work by young creators from Jordan, a country with which we share strong bonds of friendship", and includes works by: Ala Younis, Ahmed El Khalidi, Ahmad Salameh, Asia Sheshani, Dana Kaoukji, Deema Shahin, Dina Haddadin, Firas Shehadeh, Juman Nimri, Khaldoun Hijazin, Linda Al Khoury, Mais el Azab, Mohammad Hawwari, Mo'men Khalid Malkawi, Raed Ibrahim, and Reema Shatat.
