State of Sabotage (SoS) was founded as a sovereign state in 2003 on the unpopulated island Harakka in Finland. It was initiated by the Austrian artist Robert Jelinek during the Amorph Summit of Micronations in Helsinki, Finland. The patron saint of Sabotage is H.R. Giger, the Swiss artist famous for his sombre and grotesque imagery. According to their own statement ‘Sabotage knows neither officials nor functionaries—it knows only self-determined artists and active associates.’ The State has its own art collection with contributions by Roman Signer, Joseph Beuys, Arman Linke, among others. Sabotage has a non defined territory and may emerge anywhere geographically.
