independent zines and niche publications as forms of alternative media offer a space for experimentation and spontaneity, facilitating a culture of collective production by turning readers into producers.
the object-ive zine series emerged from a desire to engage in the processes of recontextualisation and unlearning.
history is not odourless and static;¹ retrieved from the repositories of memory it moves like smoke, like vapour.
object-ive zine features fictional narratives, theoretical reflections, linear and abstract narratives that see history, spatiality and knowledge as fluid forces. collective desire is about ‘making hope practical, rather than despair convincing’,² challenging absolutes at the intersection of culture, politics and everyday life.
