"The boundaries of low culture and high culture blur, through convergence. Many people are "omnivores", making cultural choices from different menus. The 1990s artwork of Jeff Koons appropriate low art tropes of kitsch and pornography. Rhys Chatham's musical piece Guitar Trio 1977 is an example of incorporating (low culture) primitive punk rock aesthetics into (high culture) contemporary classical music."--Sholem Stein

Borders define geographic boundaries of political entities or legal jurisdictions, such as governments. Some borders—such as a state's internal administrative border, or inter-state borders within the Schengen Area—are open and completely unguarded. Other borders are partially or fully controlled, and may be crossed legally only at designated border checkpoints and border zones may be controlled. Some, mostly contentious, borders may even foster the setting up of buffer zones.


  1. The dividing line or location between two areas.
