One Town,Infinite Borders

The town of Baarle straddles an international border, with half of it belonging to the Dutch and the other half to the Belgians. With dozens of border crossings throughout town, many houses, shops and even roads are split in two. And with two countries comes two sets everything—two mayors, two flags, two council and even two sets of laws.

‘The Perils of Masturbation’—a cautionary tale


Le livre sans titre (“The Book With No Title”) was published in in 1830 as warning to young French men about the consequences of masturbation, a malady which lead to early death. It tells the story of a young man who was his mother's pride and joy until he discovered masturbation. He died bald and covered in pustules at just 17 years of age.

His chest is buckling. He vomits blood.

His entire body is covered in pustules. He is a horrible sight.

At the age of 17 he dies in horrible torments.
