one of the exhibitions at the Palais de Tokyo (unfortunately on the far side of the room filled with mould scuptures) is the amazing Micronations room, curated by Peter Collins--the show is here until May 6th. it introduces the fantastical but real world of miniature invented countries...for all of us who have thought of seceding from the country we're in.
two of my favourites are Adjnabistan, invented by American Michael Ashkin when he was travelling in the Middle East (see his explanation & installation photos here) and The Conch Republic (surrounded by the Florida Keys) which is celebrating its 25th anniversary today.
