The State Of Print is a proposition. An evolving visual declaration initiated by a collective of artists beguiled and amused at the catastrophe of current social political thinking and the comedy of established systems of governance.

We propose then to cast adrift on a nonsense of our own (print)making – a makeshift non geographical region built upon the flow of ink and a constitutional raft of recycled cardboard. The intention is to explore the current state of nations and the notion that everything that formalises a nation state is printed – money, maps, laws, information, governments, monarchies etc.

The State Of Print has no boundaries. It has the potential to expand by invitation – with each contributor becoming a citizen of the State of Print – and can be reconstituted and reconfigured continually. At a time when the current state of nation power is globally inflexible and dogmatic, this project provides a creative and theoretical antidote to the current paradigm.

Welcome to the State of Print. (Please have your ID ready for checking)
