On May 8, 2015 the Round table Rendering a Nation: The Territories of the Dispossessed will take place as part of the 56th Venice Biennale for Contemporary Art. Anya Medvedeva, Communications Director of IZOLYATSIA will participate in the event.

Around the world, more than 51 million individuals have either fled their country or are displaced from their homes due to war and violence. If you considered them as a state, they would represent the 25th nation in the word. Nation 25 is an art project that aims to shine a light on the lives of refugees, migrants and the internally displaced. The talk will seek to better define the idea of a “nation” whose existence is based on common needs and experiences and opposed to territorial integrity and imagine with the artistic practice how to build our own territory, both physical and mental.

The discussion takes place at SaLE Docks at the address: Magazzini del Sale, Dorsoduro 265, Venice.
