After silence, that which comes nearest to
expressing the inexpressible is music.


Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963)

STATEART - Expressing the Inexpressible (1996 - 2006)

Ten years, we thought, appear to be an appropriate anniversary - and turning point: As of November 2006 we announce STATEART to be history!

For one decade, the name STATEART represented exceptional music and quality releases. Starting in 1996 and rapidly becoming one of Germany's most renowned mid-to-late 90s Industrial labels, we intentionally took a sharp turn early in this new millenium and focussed on releasing a different, more eclectic nature of artist than what the existing Industrial agenda had to offer. However, the label owes its success to all artists we had the pleasure and honor to work with - at almost 40 releases we treasure so much. Sincere gratitude goes to all of you, as well as all the music enthusiasts who purchased our releases and formed the base of STATEART over the years: THANK YOU!

We're now building complete STATEART discography and history pages over the next months, including the opportunity to download some of our rare releases and possibly even unreleased material by artists, who remain in our family. Your efforts to keep our website in mind and bookmarked shall be rewarded.

In addition to that, naturally, we try to keep our current catalogue available for purchase. Check our website for dealer recommendations!

Until we meet again...
