Realism is a product of the state. The imaginary challenges capitalist realism by threatening the spectacle of capital with the possibility of its own contingency. The Imaginary Collective is comprised of artists located anywhere in the world. We are imaginary because to be real is to be co-opted or crushed by the state. We only exhibit secretly in imaginary autonomous zones that we create in spaces we do not have permission to show. Exhibitions are not open to the public and we never disclose locations.
