Welcome to the launch of the first issue of
Rab-Rab: journal for political and formal

practice we intend to use Rab-Rab as a platform

Rab-Rab, which will be accompanied by live music
and a chess club, is also an opportunity for
meeting with people who would like to join us in
For us Rab-Rab represents the possibility of
non-institutional and independent engagement with
art. We are happy to share with you our
experiences in realization of this journal and to
present our future plans.
