How are you feeling now that the autumn equinox has passed? Feeling like you might want to huddle together with something warm in your belly, reading one of your fave zines? Well fret not, as the autumn launch is here and we are offering just that (minus the huddling, but I am sure one of the YNY team will give you a cuddle if asked). We are launching our Autumn13 edition this Sunday at GENERATORprojects, Dundee. The issue is packed with great black and white musings along with another cracking cover by the amazingly talented Cos Ahmet. Plus we will have performances and a special announcement, read on to find out more.
1 - Zine + Soup + Performance /// Autumn edition launch, GENERATORprojects, Dundee, 29.09.13 @ 2pm
We will be giving away free soup at our zine launch this weekend at GENERATORprojects alongside hosting fabulous performances by Beth Savage and Ruth Aitken. The event will start at 2pm with Ben 'Jack Your Body' Robinson serenading us with a specially selected soupy sound mix.
Beth Savage is an artist living and working in Dundee. Her work investigates social ecologies and the human/nature relationship and explores ideas of ritual, abjection and the uncanny. Working across several mediums including performance and installation, she creates work drawing on and subverting everyday experience.
There will also be an exclusive announcement about the future of Yuck 'n Yum, so if you want be the first to know, come along.
Hope to see you there!
