Nomadsland

 

Nomadsland is a border-less, land-less country for people who want to be a part of something more than a plot of land, pre-emptive strikes, hidden agendas and borders. Anyone can become a citizen and get a passport. All you need to do is fill out a form, partake of the ceremonial hug and repeat the oath, “Everything is going to be OK.” During a week-long performance at Contemporary Art Forum, Kitchener, Canada in 2003, Nomadsland Passport Officer Alex issued 120 passports to new citizens of Nomadsland. Nomadsland is an Independent State of Mind, existing as all states do: within the imagination. It has no borders and encompasses the entire world as a network of diverse people and language. Citizen of Nomadsland tries to understand what it means to become a Nomad by learning the history, values, and rights and responsibilities of citizenship.
