Spanning across different borderlands from Indonesia to Abkhazia in Eurasia, the contributors to this 'the Focus' (guest edited by Mona Chettri and Michael Eilenberg) investigate the diversity of ruins in Asia and show how the materiality of ruins also eventually become borders themselves; signposts that separate the past from the present; tangible markers between nation-states, cultures and people.
