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)
