SOFT/EIS is a new zine providing a printed platform for people to share ideas and writing. The initial principle of SOFT/EIS is to explore dualities and paradoxes and all the ideas in between. The name SOFT/EIS is intended to encompass this with the juxtaposition of the two title words, soft and eis (ice in german). This also acts as a link to the bilingual form of the zine and its base in Berlin. These zines will supplement the ‘What’s On Your Mind’ events series run by The Palace arts organisation. Each issue and event will tackle a different topic that we believe is currently important to deconstruct and examine in detail; meant as a take away from each event and a seed planter of the ideas that will be discussed there. Much like the events series, the zine is meant as a (printed) space for collaboration between people, platforms and communities.
