Volume 5: A messy archive of homemade futures
07.12.2018 – 08.12.2018
Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam
XYZ is a collection of text, illustrations, photographs, art, sketches, video, music and anything else that can possibly be represented on paper. Every edition of XYZ is put together by a fresh group of collaborators. The group sets out with only a theme on Friday. Over the next 24 hours, they each produce pages for the magazine, which they then print, bind and distribute as 100 copies on the same day. Oksana Savchuk has worked on several earlier editions of the magazine and will also be helping to make volume 5. Inspired? You can join in too!

This fascinating cross-disciplinary project was inaugurated during the Venice Biennale in 2017.
