For fifteen years, house Kleylehof 13 located near Nickelsdorf at the Austrian-Hungarian border was home to a collective unafraid of challenging societal, artistic and geographic boundaries. In the fall of 2015 the col- lective was evicted – just when others opted to ignore the border altogether. This film investigates how an activist and symbolic art utopia can enlarge the scope of action for social change.
