 - Bezna
An anthology of the artists' zine.
“Bezna” in Romanian means consistent darkness + diffuse fear. Bezna is darkly glowing dead thinking, cosmic pessimism, hairy autonomy, inner reptilians, limbo sighs, horrendous pink volumes, underground nematodes, happy dismemberment, haunting prehumanism, compassion crises, glowing horror, sinister moods, aesthetic autophagia, postspectacle shelters, eternal stillness, future plague, decomposing knowledge, ouroboric moves, idiot nonknowing, shadow bodies, netherworld excavations, imperceptible evil, hyperbolic specters and news from Cioran.
Bezna was a zine published between 2011-2014 and comprised five issues collectively edited by artists Florin Flueraş, Veda Popovici, Arnold Șlahter, Claudiu Cobilanschi, Irina Gheorghe and Alina Popa, in the memory of whom this anthology is published.
