L’Estació, the multilingual, trans-Atlantic magazine of the arts, poetics and politics, was founded in Barcelona and is based in Barcelona and Mexico City. Its aim is to contribute to critical and cultural debate and the exchange of ideas, images, language and unique realities.

L’Estació is a collective adventure that is meant for all those who seek to better grasp and share other possible worlds that might also be found in this one, as presented here and now. It is an invitation to take a journey to discover the unexpected, amidst a variety of authors, languages, disciplines, cultures and sensibilities.

The first issue of L’Estació, with an image by the Quay Brothers and a text by Chantal Maillard, was released in the autumn of 2015. The final issue, number 12, was released in the summer of 2018, with an image by the artist Esther Ferrer and a text by Marina Garcés. Over the course of three years, the others collaborating in the magazine have been: Graciela Iturbide and Dipesh Chakrabarty (no. 2), Alfredo Jaar and Jacques Rancière (no. 3), Carles Santos and Jerome Rothenberg (no. 4), William Kentridge and Juan Villoro (no. 5), Evru and Arnaldo Antunes (no. 6), Guillermo Kuitca and Enric Casasses (no. 7), Antoni Muntadas and Antonio Gamoneda (no. 8), Alberto Kalach and Perejaume (no. 9), Frederic Amat and Bei Dao (no. 10) and Joan Fontcuberta and Valère Novarina (no. 11).

L’Estació is a project of artistic and poetic creation as well as of philosophical and political reflection. It appeared seasonally (with four issues a year), with each issue offering dialogue between text and image of an open, random and unexpected nature, in the connection between a creator of imagery (a visual artist, architect, musician, or others) and a writer (such as a poet, philosopher or essayist). The image was not meant to illustrate the text, and the text was not conceived to comment or reflect on the image or its creator; text and image are independent and autonomous realities which, without a predefined subject, would come to coincide in L’Estació.

L’Estació was produced on paper and in digital format at www.lestacio.cat. The edition on paper, in DIN A3 size with a run of 1000 copies, featured the original version of the text. Subscribers also had access to a limited edition of 100 copies with the original work on paper signed and numbered. In turn, there is a free and open version available online. In the digital version the text can be read in original version with corresponding translations into Catalan, Spanish and English.
