June 25th to July 7th, 2019 + October 1st to 13th, 2019

MACRO – Museum of Contemporary art, Rome, Via Nizza 138, Roma

Nation25 aims to identify and affirm the trend of migrant people in Italy, a style that unites elements from different worlds telling us where we come from, where we are going, about traditions and new ideals.

In order to define and launch the migrant’s boys and girls style as a fashion, Nation25 invites to a participatory laboratory that will offer a space for intercultural exchange and is an internship in the fields of fashion, photography, design and marketing.

B&W - Lab consists of two phases of two weeks each, to be hosted at the Contemporary Art Museum of Rome MACRO Asilo, a partner of the project:

- The first phase from June 25th to July 7th, 2019: is a preliminary phase to focus on identifying the characteristics of the trend.

- The second phase from October 1st to 13th, 2019: in depth phase to design the brand and B&W Platform.

B&W lab's participation is free.

Please register sending a short bio with your contacts to nazione25@gmail.com before 18 June 2019.

The lab is open to everyone: students, artists, stylists, photographers, designers, tailors, activists and interested people; Italians, foreigners, migrants, refugees, asylum seekers.




12.05 – 26.11. 2017

57th International Art Exhibition, Venice

The third edition of the Nationless Pavilion, curated by Nation25 with the collaboration of Chloé Bonnie More, examines the model of Fondaco, born in the X century, in its historical sense of a place of accommodation and exchange of goods for the different cultures bordering on the Mediterranean.

The fondaco is a tool for reflecting on the first relationships between foreign communities, and their cultural and economic dynamics, in the Mediterranean area.

The Nationless Pavilion will try to reactivate the network that has developed over the centuries in the Mediterranean through an exchange of thought and not thanks to monetary economics.

For a re-reading of the background between past history and future perspective.

Embodying Borders

a performance series

25.05 - 27.11 2016


During the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of Venice “Reporting From The Front”, The Nationless Pavilion has decided to develop the performance series "Embodying Borders" on the dynamics of individual and collective bodies in relation to the architecture of barriers, spurring a reflection on what it means to inhabit the border, appropriate it, measure it, crossing it, going beyond it.

The Nationless Pavilion 2016 opens its second edition keeping its non-exhibition form, in collaboration with local entities and creative realities present in the venetian territory, activating processes that cross paths with fellow citizens, migrants and refugees.

A process to represent the 25th Nation

6.05 - 22.11 2015 – Venice


The first project of Nation 25 is The Nationless Pavilion, the Pavilion of those dispossessed of a nation in comparison with the system of National Pavilions in Biennale: a foundational and critical gesture at the same time.


Which is the space within this system of those who lost their Nation / territory?

What it means to maintain a separation of national identity when we are challenging the borders?


The project will open in Venice with a series of collective moments from May to November:

open call, performance and laboratory.
