State of Print

State of Print, Jane Elizabeth Bennett, University of Central Lancashire

The State of Print is an Artist Led Nation and it has been a pleasure to be offered citizenship.

SOP is a touring exhibition that questions the nature of states, borders, and reproduction. Each time the state relocates to a new exhibition space it collects ten artists who print ten boxes which are absorbed into the collection. All works respond to the manifesto laid out by the state.

All States are Fake
All Images are Made
All Worlds are Invented
