Nation & Negation presentation/discussion by Romana Schmalisch & Robert Schlicht

What is a nation? How is it determined? Passport? Language? Tradition or political interests of nation-states?This seemingly simple concept remains a constant subject for discussions between the states and communities that have so far considered their "nation." 
Our goal is to penetrate into historical narratives and discourses, to try to mutually mutate them, thus revealing the influence of past events and the ability to influence the formation of the nation. Our goal is to excavate those areas that can carry the traces of those processes, including the vacuums created by the change in social, cultural and political conditions.
