“Others’ Thruths” a new zine by Know Hope
Release date: 13.9.12
The zine will be released in a special event that will take place on Thursday, September 13th at 20:00
(the exhibition will remain open Friday, September 15th, 12:00-16:00)
at “Studio”, 2 Harakevet St., Tel Aviv
“Others’ Truths”, Know Hopes tenth and newest zine is comprised of a series of drawings, texts and observations collected during the past year.
While working on the zine, Know Hope focused on the idea of ‘truisms’, which are often adopted without questioning; by the use of the image of the flag in his work, Know Hope attempts to research the concepts of patriotism and nationalism, not necessarily from a directly political stance, but from a viewing point of the personal or private human condition in relation to the more general and collective.
“Others’ Truths” is in a way a continuation of Know Hopes research, attempting to understand the current situation that we find ourselves in, being born into a charged reality structured on the foundations of past and outdated morals and values.
The original drawings that were used as pages in the zine will be exhibited during the event. The drawings are composed of Know Hopes repetitive iconography, that are an insight to the human condition, as well as the motif of ‘the flag’ and the relationship between the two.
The zine will be available during the event, and at www.thisislimbo.bigcartel.com and selected stores from Friday, September 14th.
“Others’ Truths” is independently published in an edition of 1000. The zines are soft cover and have 64 b/w pages.
In addition to the zines, sticker packs created specially for the event will be available.
