ZK/U INTERVENTION // THE FLAGS OF SOLIDARITY // ZIP GROUP
After February 24, when Russia unleashed the full-scale war of aggression in sovereign Ukraine, it became impossible for us to stay and continue working in Krasnodar. Typography CCA, for which ZIP Group and the center’s team dedicated a lot of effort in the course of ten years, was labeled a ‘foreign agent’ by the state authorities. From that moment on, we became a shattered nomadic self-organization relying on collectivity and intangible connections.
For the first months in exile, we settled in Yerevan, Armenia. Though, gradually everyone went in different directions: part of the Typography CCA is currently in Berlin, some colleagues moved to Cologne, and some remained in Armenia. We have been displaced from our native context, but we keep on coming up with new ways of maintaining ties with it.
