Cinta para Medir (Measuring Tape)

makes reality"

"es un error humano olvidar que la poesía
hace la realidad"

Molotov or The Sleep of the Reason Produces Monsters
Alan Sobrino

An incendiary artistic exploration of the complex relationship between money and society. Delving deep into the history of currency, this piece is a stark reminder of the inherently artificial nature of money itself. From its origins to its modern-day manifestations, a detailed timeline sheds light on the counterfeit nature inherent in all monetary systems.

At its core, 'Molotov' presents a bold proposition: a call to action to dismantle the capitalist paradigm. It offers an ideological Molotov bomb, challenging viewers to confront the structures that govern our economic reality. 'Molotov' is more than a book; it's a conceptual manifesto, a catalyst for change in a world where the sleep of reason too often births monsters of inequality and exploitation.

Book contains screen-printed fabric, a sticker and instructions to assamble your own molotov coctel.

Errant Passport
Alan Sobrino

Errant Passport is a conceptual essay about borders. It is an official, non-official document that allows its readers free transit around the world.

The passport allows their carriers to choose their names, determine their sexuality, and states a single place of birth for all humans: planet earth. The Passport includes 16 Visas, each with a QR that links to different books and videos that inspired the piece as an invitation to a more critical and informed debate.

A book can also exist as an autonomous and self-sufficient form, including perhaps a text that emphasizes that form, a text that is an organic part of that form: here begins the new art of making books. (Ulises Carrion)
