31 October 2009, 7.00 p.m.
The office for medical assistance for refugees (Büro für medizinische Flüchtlingshilfe or Medibüro) reports on the medical supply for undocumented refugees and migrants and invites to discussions. How are undocumented migrants exculded from the regular health system? What practical and political responses are there? The Medibüro exists since 1996 as a self-organised and non-governmental organisation and arranges anonymous and free of charge treatments provided by qualified health care professionals for people without residence permit status and without health insurance.
The aim of the political action of the Medibüro is the liquidation of itself.

5 November 2009, 7.00 p.m.
Screening of the documentary ›Freedom, Security and Justice — Migration Management at the External Borders of the EU‹ from PT Grenzräume Europa followed by a discussion with the film makers.
This documentary illustrates the technological build-up within a new migration regime at the eastern external borders of the European Union.
While borderlands in the Mediterranean and around the Canary Islands have been largely represented in the discourse of mainstream media, the eastern external land borders of the EU have rarely been paid attention to. The film focuses on the example of the border between Slovakia and Ukraine and gives a critical and detailed description of the technological, institutional and discoursive build-up of the EU land borders in the east.
It becomes obvious how the impact of EU migration and security policy expands far over EU territory. As main actors in the Slovakian-Ukrainian example, the European Border Agency FRONTEX and the Slovakian Border Police introduce their strategies and technologies for effective regulation of migration into the EU.
The film critically comments on this self presentation of the EU border regime.
The film was shot on a field trip of the collective “Borderlands of Europe” in September 2008.
