Poet and architect duo, Kreider + O‘Leary, take a closer look at boundaries and borderlands across the world in an exploration of how we ought to live together.

Kreider + O’Leary’s performance lecture uses spoken word, video and live projected drawing to critically examine the boundaries and borderlands of some of their recent projects.

We will move across continents, from the Open City in Chile and the route of Gandhi’s infamous Salt March in India, to the contested spaces of the ‘peace walls’ in Northern Ireland and across migrant routes through the island of Lesvos in Greece. Journey from spaces of exclusion and explore the ‘outsider’ as much as the outside as we pose the political question, “How should we live together?”


Kreider + O’Leary are a poet and an architect who collaborate to make performance, installation and time-based media work in relation to sites of architectural and cultural interest. Since 2003, they have made work in places such as prisons, military sites, film locations, landscape gardens, desert environments and more traditional gallery venues across the UK, USA, Europe, Australia, South America and Japan.
