De Facto Live #4

De Facto explores the realm of unrecognized states, fictional countries and curious border zones. On July 13 we organize a live evening with talks, art and film at De Roode Bioscoop in Amsterdam. Join us!

We will interview historian Thomas von der Dunk who wrote a book about the contested region of South Tyrol. What happens to a community when identity and nationality do not match? Film maker Ineke Smits will tell us about Abkhazia, a de facto state in the Caucasus, and show us some fragments of her documentary Little Man, Time and the Troubadour. Is there really a micronation within the Dutch borders? Jorie Horsthuis will take us to the founders of EuroStaete. And what about the kalashnikov on Cabinda’s coin? Floor Koomen goes into the details. Last but not least: a quiz by Suzanne Hendriks.
