The City Is Ours #1: Discarded Gums

Regular price $26.50

How many types of abandoned gum can you find? Can a piece of gum reveal something to us about the city and its inhabitants?

In this issue, the first in a series of six bookzines from Finland's Other Editions that invite you to explore your surroundings with a more curious gaze, readers are offered a provocative and new look at the ubiquitous pieces of gum found on the street.

Sections analyze different types of discarded gums with a scientific-but-ironical approach and also presents the work of artists, photographers and observers who utilize discarded gum as their muse. These works offer an inspiring overview of how gum can be perceived and interpreted differently, and lead into a list of tasks for readers that can reshape their relationship with leftover gum.

Take a close look at the streets and you may find treasures. 

Contributors include Aaron Luckman, Ieva Laube, Isabella De Silvestro, Joost Markerink, Milo, Paul Sutton, Sanne Couprie and Simone Decker.
