about

THE STATE is a publishing practice based out of Dubai, U.A.E. We are interested in postcolonial vernaculars, South-South relations, alternative futurisms, and the future weird. Our online iteration—this site—includes essays, our mixtape series TRANSMISSIONS, and monthly downloadable GUEST ISSUES, edited by a different person or external publication each time.

In our publishing arm, we produce themed print volumes, or book objects. VOL I: ‘Voicings / Articulations / Utterances, VOL II: Speculative Geographies, VOL III: The Social Olfactory, and VOL IV: DUBAI are now available to read and buy online.

Also available is Lisbon 2070: The Future Conditional, produced for the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale.

We also host a discussion series, TRIANGULATIONS, in our Dubai studio Satellite, along with a range of film screenings, popups, and other programming—see events/projects for more information.

SUBMISSIONS for online contributions are open on a rolling basis.
