Populism: visualised.

von Amin al Magrebi

Empty as it may be, the hall roars. A man in his mid-fifties stands tall, his hair grayer than it should be. He declares, in the European Parliament in Brussels, the capital of the Kingdom of Belgium, a full member of the United Nations and the European Union: „Belgium is not a nation.“

As absurd and far from reality this sentence might be, Nigel Farage, a British member of the European Parliament, said it shamelessly in the European Parliament – again, in Brussels!- This small scene is the closest it could get to a visual definition of populism.
