There is no inclusion, only exclusions. Through media information we are caught up globally in all political, artistic and economic questions, enabling us to understand immediately what is happening in other countries. As a result, the concept of "countries" can be abolished, leaving only people, who need to be connected, for if we cannot influence others, we will be unable to create either artistic or economic conditions. As a result there is only one form of distance: from those who reject everything coming from outside.
