No nation exists in a physical way, that is, as an objective entity. Its intangible nature is held as a mental construction present only in the collective imagination. However all war, all state violence and all forms of government are based on the concept of nation.
- Visual artist Rubén Martín de Lucas
Spanish photographer Rubén Martín de Lucas constructed nine sets of 100-square-meter landscapes and lived in each for 24 hours. He photographed the experience via a drone for his series ‘Minimal Republics’, in order to critique the issue of border control across the world.
