|Abstract||In this essay I start by telling the strange story of a painter and of his picture. The story, I argue, invites questions about artistic space that could be productively asked of 'legal space' too - the space that each legal theory and practice, each time and in different ways, institutes and rules. What, the story asks, is to think legal space? Where do the origins of legal space lie? In short, how is the heartland of legal space? How for example is the heartland of 'contract', 'murder', 'citizenship' or 'war'? Such questions - as it will be apparent to anyone interested in today's most troubling debates over the future of the nation states and of the rule of law - are of considerable importance and should not be ignored by a genuinely imaginative legal scholarship.|
