On drifting is a participatory lexicon imagined and produced by the collective Calypso36°21 from 2018 to 2021, as part of its curatorial research programme Out.of.the.blue.map. This book gathers contributions proposed by a multitude of humans whose work summons, explores and questions the liminal dimension of Mediterranean borderscapes. Poets, lawyers, navigators, activists, artists, architects, researchers, writers, philosophers and political scientists have been collaborating with Calypso36°21 since 2018 to create this final edition.
Conceived as an alternative cartography of the [fluid+solid] border landscapes of the Mediterranean, On drifting aims to disrupt the spatial regimes, often derived from (post)colonial narratives, that now freeze the understanding of this territory. The lexicon is read from shore to shore.
