There is something perpetually transcending about the idea of contemporaries – people who live through and witness a particular period in time, as perhaps existentially irreversible moments and impressions. Our zine S’lim is a long-term, casually irregular publication project looking into situations, places and their contemporaneities.

S’lim is a zine edited and created by us and the people and projects we encounter, focusing on a particular place at a time, merging the contemporary and the historical experiences of visiting, living, staying and theorizing. At the same time, S’lim is an experimental publication project, started as a response to “everything becoming available” in a multitude of media, geographies and archival existences. Each issue is choicely “slim” (with 32 A4 pages + covers) when seen on its own, stretched over time. But as the issues might be stacked together, they also become a method of accumulating, producing and collecting.
