It presents an exhibition of about forty European photographers. Here are our favorites!
Minimal Republics is a series of actions on the landscape, which responds to a performative exercise:
- appropriate 100m2 of land
- draw a border
- inhabit it
The results are “ephemeral micro-states” whose limit always responds to geometry, the most artificial criterion for a border, whose duration does not exceed 24 hours and whose only inhabitant is the artist himself. Ridiculous and absurd states, documentation in the form of photography and aerial video invite us to think about the artificial and ephemeral nature of any border.
Minimal Republics is part of STUPID BORDERS, a series of conceptual projects that questions the idea of ”nation” and highlights the strange sense of possession one has over the Earth.
Rubén Martin de Lucas was born in Spain in 1977, he lives and works in Spain.
