The State of Print is formed by a collective of artists surprised and intrigued by the catastrophe of current social political thought and the comedy of the established systems of government. Therefore, we have chosen to drift into a farce of our own impression - an impromptu non-geographic region built on a fluid state of ink and a constitutional base of recycled cardboard. A state that questions the current state of nations and the fact that everything that is formalized by a nation-state is printed: currency, maps, laws, passports, government, news and information, etc. At a time when the current state of the nation's power at the global level is inflexible and dogmatic, this project provides a creative and theoretical antidote to the current paradigm.
State of Print is an evolving project that has established temporary embassies in Ireland, Scotland, and recently in Santander. The opening of the next temporary embassy will be in Barcelona, at EINA Espai Barra de Ferro. Where the print state will become manifest through multiple impressions.
For more information on how to become a citizen of the print status or visit the SOP Embassy in Espai Barra de Ferro, between October 10 and 23.
