Mine, Yours and Ours: Borders, Territories and Unions is a research-based visualization on how people, culture and states have navigated their own existence, or could, in the spaces and times of Eurasia. As virtually every place in Eurasia was occupied by more than one ethnic group, language, or religion through its history, the exhibition highlights the ephemeral certainty of place-based identity of culture and history. It challenges the stasis of territories, while endorsing the integrative quality of the border over its divisional mandate. It inspects the contestations between the reality of distinction and promises of commonality that have marked the territorial composition of Eurasia.

Mine, Yours and Ours: Borders, Territories and Unions is the third and final exhibition of a three-year long project called Imagining New Eurasia, by Kyong Park (2015–18). “Imagining New Eurasia is a project to research the historical precedents of Eurasia and visualize its contemporary reconstruction as one continent. The first exhibition Here, There and Every Where: Eurasian Cities looked at the cultural terrain of Eurasia through the localized lens of distinct “places,” through their urban transformations, cultural exchanges and economic interactions. The second exhibition, From, To and In Between: A Theater of Networks visualized the ways in which the Old Silk Road, the New Silk Road, and other routes have constructed a grand network that shaped and defined Eurasia since ancient times. The project is commissioned by, and exhibited at the Asia Culture Center in Gwangju, South Korea. A book under the same title will be published in late 2018, supported by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
