In line with the theme of our fifth anniversary, which addresses the city and neighbourly relations at various levels – interinstitutional, interstate, intimate and friendly –, we’ll be holding the second in our series of workshops from the zine library under the title of Dear neighbours!.
Participants will receive a package of various materials for making collages – contributions to a group zine on the topic of neighbours and the urban. Just like artist Nik Erik Neubauer documented the happenings in four parts of Ljubljana in his zine One Thousand Ljubljana (video of the zine), we’re inviting you to document moments from your own neighbourhood with a collage. This can mean your neighbours, fellow citizens, what’s happening on the street, the view of the neighbouring building through your window … You can pick up your package of collage materials at the DobraVaga Gallery or receive it by mail. We’ll collect the resulting collages in a group zine, which will also be included in our ZINE VITRINE library.
Advance applications are mandatory, apply at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is 20. 7. 2021. We’ll prepare a package of collage materials for you, which you can pick up at the DobraVaga Gallery or receive it by mail. Send your finished collage to email@example.com by 31. 7. 2021. You can also send them by mail (Galerija DobraVaga, Adamič-Lundrovo nabrežje 5, 1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia) or bring them to the gallery yourself.
Below you can view a presentation of the curated reading room highlights, as well as certain highlighted zines from our collection that might provide inspiration for your own contribution.
