BORDERPANIC was a project in September 2002, held in Sydney, that brought together artists, media makers and thinkers who are questioning the world’s geopolitical and metaphorical borders.The project was initiated by Performance Space and developed by Zina Kaye and Deborah Kelly. It included a major exhibition, video screening and presentation at Performance Space, a tactical media lab and a symposium hosted by the Museum of Contemporary Art, a forum at Metro Screen and a postcard competition held in conjunction with Avant Cards.

As a part of BORDERPANIC, ANAT and Performance Space collaborated on the publication of a Reader, serving to contextualise the events and further extend engagement with urgent issues of migration, border control and social structures in the 21st century.

It features works and texts by artists and speakers involved in the project including Julian Burnside OC, Linda Jaivin and Cordon Hookey.
