HFBC Book Ready for you to Explore (& get a copy for your collection!)

Remember a couple of weeks ago, we received some copies of our How to Forget the Border Completely book? Well, there were a couple of print issues that have now been resolved, so if you’ve been waiting to get your hands on a copy, now’s the time! HFBC was an 8-month research project that looked at the ways in which we might actually be able to forget about the border between Windsor and Detroit. Whether through small-scale micro-grants or large-scale infrastructure proposals, we imagined these two cities as one big community across 150 pages.

You can purchase the book through Blurb. It should arrive within a couple weeks tops. We’re going to get around to offering a soft cover version too, soon. In the meantime, you can also read through a PDF of the entire book (p.s. it’s 72mb). It’s probably not as fun as having a book in your hands, but the content is there for your perusal.

This book is actually phase 1 of a larger HFBC project — think airplanes, scale models, and a few other things that will take a lot longer to complete than we ever anticipated. For now though, we’re just really happy to see this in print!

  1. [...] Crossing the Detroit-Windsor International border isn’t just a physical process of moving from one place to another, there are economic, psychological, and bureaucratic borders to cross as well.   Our lovely artists friends from the south, Broken City Lab, have addressed these issues in an incredible, new book “How to Forget the Border Completely.” The book delves into the constructed differences between two cities, Detroit and Windsor, with nearly identical issues due to similar social, economic, and cultural factors.  Justin Langlois, a Senior Research Fellow at Broken City Lab, explains “Whether through small-scale micro-grants or large-scale infrastructure proposals, we imagined these …” [...]
