FRAGMENTA is taking over the island of Comino on Sunday October 28th, with a conceptual work by artist Mario Asef. Several buildings will be appropriated to present the design of a nation called Kemmuna Nation. The day is programed with an opening speech, several presentations of Kemmuna Coin cryptocurrency, the Comino ecosystem and a guided ecological tour through out the island. A sound installation showing the plants’ sound production is planned.
“October 28th will be the date: nature declares its own independency. Plants, animals and minerals will unite to build the most powerful nation in the world, leaving behind times of plunder and exploitation through men. This will be the day that the world order will take a new shape. Join us to be witness of the birth of Kemmuna Nation”, Mario Asef announces.
In the age of the Anthropocene, the end is near. The “ideal of a shared world no longer exists”, political philosophy has lost its language, globalization is experiencing a negative reversal. Now, the earth starts fighting back.
Kemmuna Nation speculates with the idea of a global nation constituted by non-humans entities, which organize themselves creating their own economical and political system based on the structures of specific pre-existing interconnections between species.
