15EUR + 6EUR shipping / 18USD + 7USD shipping
Our small and spontaneous experiment turned into a really global thing thanks to all the 64 artists responded to the open with more than 180 images call and Zoopark Publishing Collective who designed this zine during the live stream in front of us.
We were calling for artists to reflect on their state of mind during this everlasting pandemic and the outcome exceeded our expectations. This zine turned into a record of very diverse opinions expressed visually and with a bit of word. You can see there a mixture of emotions and messages: from boredom, depression and despair to some fun, irony, hope, and many more. The zine includes many abstract images and its overall composition leaves a lot of space for interpretation.
We’re extremely happy and grateful to everyone who responded to the call, joined the live stream and ordered some copies. As we feel, this experiment helped all of us to cut the distance between so many people from dozens of countries around the globe.
Now you can see a dummy on the images above and order a copy. The first print run has already been sent to a printing studio in Berlin — we’re starting to ship orders!
We’ve spent a bit more than a week with these wonderful pictures and even though had to struggle to fit into 72 pages to make the staple binding possible, we are happy with this final PDF. We integrated the suggestions for the title that we had from the live-stream participants, making them sound like some confused voice call of two people separated by the lockdown.
The final version of the zine includes 48 pictures from around 35 photographers, and we sending it to print this week.
