The seven different postcards testify of my trip aiming to link a capital with a border. Leaving by train the Europaplatz of the new Hauptbahnhof in Berlin, I aimed the Place de l'Europe located at the ferry harbor in Calais, France, a place combining physical, geographical and political borders in a struggling way. On the way I had to change twice the train, once in Brussels, where I found two Europe Squares, and Lilles, where the Europe Square in the middle of Koolhas' Euralille complex has been renamed Place François Mitterand soon after the former pro-european president died. On the back of each postcard, a small report links the trip's experience with different aspects of Europe's struggling definition, along with the reading of Derrida's conference The other Cape.
