“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situation that we find ourselves in, being born into a charged reality structured on the foundations of past and outdated morals and values.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 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.

Know Hope “Bound By The Ties” Art Installation and Book Release (Tel Aviv, Israel)

Know Hope

From the radio silence and the stirring tides, I am sincerely excited to let you know that I will be releasing my second book titled ‘Bound By The Ties’ next week.
The book is composed of a collection of drawings, writings, photographs and other side-seen moments, some from the recent past, and some from very close to the present.
I sewed, folded and mended, retrieved and recited; tried to understand how we got to where we are now (sunken/sunken/sunken)
This is a book that contains a narrative that speaks of being born into debt, being overwhelmed in a heartbroken world and finding and recognizing eachother in these complexities.
It attempts to document our rituals-how and why they were created. It is a folk tale of some sort, collective memories compiled like a time-capsule, or fireworks in a jar.
So, here are the details:
-The book is independently published in an edition of 1000 and is comprised of 160 full-color pages.
-There is a limited edition of the book that have handmade covers; meaning that they bear hand-sewn drawings, photographs and collages, making no two books the same.
This edition is signed and numbered and is an edition of 75.
-The prices of the books are $35 and $120, respectively.
-The book will be released at an event taking place here in Tel Aviv on March 10th.
The event will include an installation of all the original drawings, photographs and texts used in the book allowing an organic and tactile experience of the books content.
-The book will be available at the event, and on at the very day after.
