The Green Border

A border marked by 4056 boundary stones on French soil, delimiting the frontier of the lost provinces of Alsace-Lorraine that France yielded to Germany in 1870 and won back in 1918.
Today, they form a forgotten scar, a no man’s land of memory, which I explore. We follow the boundaries on the ridge of the Vosges then the Lorraine basin, meeting landscapes and inhabitants. Building an itinerary of thought, to provide visibility and status to this frontier, and make a monument of it.
