Deniz Uster and Alberta Whittle: The Polity of Φ


  • CCA 350 Sauchiehall Lane Glasgow, G2 United Kingdom

Φ is a floating nomadic country without possession of any landmass rooted on earth, whose occupants live, work and play together as an autonomous community. This utopian state is manifested in the form of an intergalactic vessel.

Throughout the exhibition, visitors negotiate individual and governmental responses to territory and freedom of movement by making visa and citizenship applications to the Polity of Φ. This exhibition is part of a community-led research project, encouraging an open dialogue on the right to inhabit specific geographies, instigating an inquiry into who exactly is welcome in Britain.
