Inclusive Nation is the culmination of a process. This process went through its incubating phase during the 2017 festival, titled Sovereign | Colony and included the one-day exhibition and event Cryptopian States that took place in Berlin earlier this year.

By examining the history of Danish colonialism and the curious relationships between its different subjects in the context of the Icelandic sovereignty centenary – this process has provided a fresh take on the relationship of colonial history to current realities. Having a creative platform to contemplate the relations between the former Danish West Indies (now U.S. Virgin Islands), Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands, is as much a new, even obscure, experience for those who come from within that geographical context as well as those external to it.

An important focus to the enquiry is the contradiction of nationalism as a liberating strategy for oppressed peoples on the one hand, and its tendency to perpetuate the oppressive ideologies of colonialism on the other. Can the latter be avoided? Does patriotism exist without a superiority complex? What is a nation without exclusion? Inclusive nation?
