SOFT/EIS is a new zine based in Berlin providing a printed platform for people to share ideas and writing. We are looking for submissions for the first issue tackling SEX. We are looking to capture the various sides of sex: the soft; the practical; the fleeting; the scientific; the hardcore; the multiple; the single; the loving; the queer, straight, non-specifying; the not being into sex at all not even a little bit. This is meant to be a sex-positive encapsulation of the variety of conversations that can be held. Any and all art forms will be considered including but not limited to prose, photography, illustrations, essays, comics, graphs, poetry, and music. Submissions in languages other than english are also welcome.
The initial principle of SOFT/EIS is to explore dualities and everything 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.
Deadline: October 31st 2018
