We are pleased to announce the artist print edition of No More Nations selected for inclusion in the 3rd Nanjing International Biennale, Nanjing, China from November 12, 2016 to February 12, 2017. 

The motto No More Nations references the current shift of influence over public space from the former structures of nation-states to the immaterial networks of private capital and global information networks.

The figure of the Hanseatic Cog ship depicted in this work played a key role in the intermixing of European trade cultures during the XIVth and XVth centuries. The history of international trade serves as a defining metaphor for the cultural impact of roving transnational forces when administered to the public sphere. ​

The ground image, a photographic capture of sunlight dispersed through a spectral prism, displays the full gamut of all visible colors. This field emphasizes the implicit unity of all humanity regardless of any and all categorical separations.
