A self-publication curated by Cooltsalon as an accessible exposure platform for creative practitioners at any career stage, the zine is Cooltsalon’s first tangible asset. The cycle of each edition is completed with 1-month availability as a downloadable file (free of charge), after which each volume is archived, never to be available again, unless shared by someone within the network. Each “Cooltzine” edition is deliberately limited in print run, encouraging exchange and DIY reproduction, sharing and copying material hand-to-hand, in the original zine culture spirit. Physical copies of Cooltzine are presented during annual one-day simultaneous exhibition event, uniting cities cross time zones and borders, and featuring live video discussions.
Cooltzine vol.2 “Shared Space”, which was presented on 18 May during the simultaneous exhibition event in London, Sofia and Belgrade, is still available from the hosting partners – Stour Space (London), MOVE.BG (Sofia) and Papergirl Galerija Hub (Belgrade) – and as a PDF from here:
