self#governing, April 2012. Вышел второй номер газеты “Беларусское самоуправление”

The hand-drawn newspaper called Self # governing, an oversized offset publication distributed both internationally, and clandestinely in Belarus with assistance from the NGO “Nash Dom”. Using a minimum of text to convey complex social concerns about life under dictatorship the artist has focused on such issues as “Belarusian self governing,” and women’s plight within the patriarchal system of government institutionalized in the country. With 60,000 copies printed in Russian, and an English version of the newspaper as well, she hopes to reach audiences inside and outside Belarus including students, NGOs, and other policy makers. In light of the recent wave of protest and resistance across the globe, Self # governing can be read – and used – as a guide for daring to think about political alternatives worldwide.
