Failed States is an editorial project that collects and investigates ideas about places, or more specifically about indeterminate geographies. With an ever-changing research mode and an open approach, the magazine seeks to imagine, occupy and furnish another type of space.
Each issue is dedicated to a different theme explored through innovative contributions from emerging and established writers, artists, directors, photographers and academics.
