‘I think we are Adventitious’ and ‘… alone now #3′ out

Neuigkeiten/News

Zunächst: ‘I think we are alone now #2′ ist mittlerweile ausverkauft. 175 Stück. Verrückt.

First: ‘I think we are alone now #2′ is finally sold out. I’m stoked by the fact that all 175 copies are gone. So go for #3 before it is to late.

I think we are alone now #3

Bereits im Sommer erblickte ‘I think we are alone now #3′ nach langer, langer Zeit das Licht – limitiert auf 125 handnummerierte Exemplare. Das Zine kann per Mail bestellt werden (we-are-alone[ätt]gmx.de) und kostet 4 € Druckkosten sowie 2,50 (D) oder 3,70 (Ausland) Versand. Der Preis deckt bewusst nur die Druckkosten ab – ich möchte es erschwinglich halten und freue mich natürlich über jegliche zusätzliche Unterstützung, die es mir die schnelle Refinanzierung weiterer Projekte ermöglicht.

Genug dazu, nun zum Inhalt. Auf 64 Seiten werden fünf Künstler/innen vorgestellt. Wie in der vorherigen Ausgabe gibt es zusätzlich zwei Interviews – diesmal noch ergänzt durch einen Essay.

‘I think we are alone now #3′, limited to 125 hand-numbered copies, already came out last summer – after I ‘worked’ on it for quite a long time. The zine can be ordered by e-mail (we-are-alone(att)gmx.de). It costs 4 € (printing costs) and 3,70 shipping (2,50 for Germany). The price only reflects the printing costs, so I appreciate any further support in order to be able to refund ongoing projects.

5 artists are presented on 64 pages – including two interviews and an essay.


Mariya Ustymenko presents her dark  series ‘Kievbound’ and explains her motives in an interview


Uwe Krahn shows his sometimes grotesque, but always great Iceland-series


Anne Henning not only crosses the borders of photography, but also wrote an assay about it (printed in german, but on demand everything is available in english – please ask me about it)

Igor Ripak takes a lively interest in Stanislaw Lems ‘Solaris’ – here, he explains why


Laura Su Lilie opens a dreamy world with her unique polaroid lift

I think we are Adventitious

Noch ein Zine, das wirklich lange brauchte. Eineinhalb Jahre, oje. Ich hoffe, es ist wie ein guter Wein. Noch ist es auf dem Weg von UK nach Freiburg, doch die ersten Bilder sind vielversprechend.
‘I think we are Adventitious’ ist eine Zusammenarbeit mit Mariya Ustymenko, die ich bereits im oben erwähnten Zine vorstellen durfte. Die Gastkuratorin Elisa Nelissen verfasste eine kurze Einladung (siehe unten), die an drei Künstlerinnen Margaret Durow, Masha Svyatogor und Leanne Surfleet geschickt wurde, welche dann im gegenseitigen Austausch ihre Serien entwickelten. Das Ergebnis wurde ungefiltert gedruckt. Das Zine wurde in einer Auflage von 50 Stück gedruckt – diesmal auf besseres Papier, daher ist der Preis von 6-7 Euro/Stück leider höher als gewohnt. Verfügbar ist es erst ab frühestens Mai, aber es gibt eine Pre-Order, die bisher sehr gut angelaufen ist – also schnell zugreifen, bevor es zu spät ist.

Okay, another zine that took a loooong time. 1,5 years. I hope it’s like a good wine. It’s currently on its way from UK to Freiburg, but the first impressions are promising.
‘I think we are Adventitious’ is a collaboration with Mariya Ustymenko, who already took part in the previous zine. Guest curator Elisa Nelissen wrote a short invitation which was sent to the three artists Margaret Durow, Masha Svyatogor and Leanne Surfleet, who developed their series in mutual exchange. The outcome was printed unfiltered. The zine is limited to 50 copies – this time with better paper, which is the reason for the higher price of 6-7 Euro/piece. It’s not available before may, but there is a pre-order, which currently runs quite good – so get your issue before it’s too late.


Und sonst so: Bags, bags, bags!

Bevor ich Erlangen verlassen habe, konnte ich nochmals die schöne Siebdruckwerkstatt im ebenso schönen Free Willy nutzen, um den schönsten Baum Erlangens zu drucken. Rausgekommen sind jede Menge hipper Turnbeutel und Taschen, ohne die der dichteste Vollbart nur halb so cool ist (mir fällt kein weibliches Pendant ein, tut mir leid). Gibts für 6-8 Euro bei mir, kann mit dem Zine verschickt werden.

Before leaving Erlangen, I was able to use the silk screen printing studio of the Free Willy, which is my ‘#3 place to be’ in Erlangen. So I printed the most beautiful tree of this shit town on bags and oh my god are they hip. Get one of these to finally be the only unique person on earth (I printed 25 pieces. Sorry.). They cost 6-8 € and I can ship them with the zines (however, shipping to non-Germany is 3,70 € per 500g, so this might become more expensive).

 

That’s all.

Good news everybody!

Great news! First, I found my password again. After not thinking about this page for the last 20 months.
Second, a lot of things happened.
‘I think we are alone now #2′ is nearly sold out, despite of the high print run of 175 pieces. Issue #3 came out last summer – I will make an extra post for this in the near future. I finished my studies last summer and went to Zürich for my PhD. So how to deal with the publishing stuff? Discard the whole project? Or the snail-tactic which I used the last years – just do nothing for a few months before editing a few more pages?
This winter, Zürich has seen a lovely small zine festival in an even more lovely location called Perla-Mode, which is now transformed to dust and a huge hole in the ground (in a few months it will be a Veggie-restaurant). And this fest really kicked me, so actually, I plan to continue publishing although my spare time is very limited.

Look forward to:
I think we are alone now #3 – I will present this zine the next days or weeks on the blog
I think we are Adventitious – this is publication #5 and a collaboration with the great “Adventitious Zine” from UK, run by Mariya Ustymenko
Fallen – a devastating series of four handmade C-prints which will be highly limited
Poladarium 2016 – daily polaroid tear-off calendar where I will share two of my Krakow-Polaroids

cheers
F.

 

please note: this is not a april fool.

Apoptosis sold out // Adventitious Zine in stock

Wow. Thanks for your support, the last two weeks have been awesome. Apoptosis #1 is already sold out.

I will set up a working shop in the near future, as it is way to complicated at the moment. Nevertheless, it has to go on like this some more weeks.

I swapped Zines with Mariya from the UK and she send me the great Adventitious Zine. I have three copies to sell, write me if you want one, they are at 7€/each (sorry, printing in the UK is way more expensive).

I think we are alone now #2 // Apoptosis #1

#I think we are alone now #2′ and my second zine ‘Apoptosis #1′ both went to press!

‘I think we are alone now #2′ will be released in a print run of 175 pieces. With 64 pages there is enough space to feature four great artists, two of them also interviewed. The interviews are in german, but I will print some english inlays.

‘Apoptosis’, with a print run of 40 pieces, is my second zine, containing only own works. It sounds more spectacular than it is, as it only reflects my crappy darkroom work this winter, lith-printing dozen of naked trees on old ORWO-paper.

Printing is freaking expensive, I just advanced my monthly students income for this. If you want to support this project (eventually, it would be great to have enough ressources to finance the next issues printing without having to sell the whole print run #2), feel free to contact me (we-are-alone[ätt]gmx.de). You also can order in advance.

The zines will cost 3-4€ (I think we are alone now) and 1,50-2€ (Apoptosis). I highly appreciate every kind of support.

If you want to visit the release ‘party’, come to Erlangen on 23/6/13 (I switch to German from here on, haha).
Um 19 Uhr gebe ich einen Reise- und Bildervortrag (Nordargentinien/-chile, Bolivien, Ostperu) und anschließend feiern wir das Release von ‘In think we are alone now #2′.

Any News?

Es gibt in der Tat Neuigkeiten, leider nur insofern, als dass ich versuche, im April noch den Probedruck loszuschicken und im Mai Ende Mai dann das Zine in den Händen halten zu können. Die nächste Auflage wird doppelt so umfangreich, kommt in einer Auflage von 150 Stück und wird vermutlich 3 – 4 Euro kosten. Immerhin kann ich jetzt endgültig die Erscheinungsfrequenz auf maximal 2/Jahr kürzen, denn mehr Zeit werde ich leider nicht finden.
