Thank you for purchasing our second issue of ARTWOLFE zine! We’re so happy you came back! Are you comfortable? Settling back to enjoy this little publication that has been handmade with love and care by us? If you missed the first issue, we’ll quickly catch you up… ARTWOLFE is a self-published zine that was made with the intention of promoting more writing (and reading) about art and performance in Namibia.
However. We intend to write about all sorts of important nonsense. From what it is to have a body, to what it is to protest and of course how both are inevitably linked. On our cover you’ll see a photo of the Katatura Community Art Centre, which you may be familiar with. However if you’re curious about the history behind this building – keep reading. We also interview the filmmaker Richard Pakleppa about his recent documentary Paths to Freedom, gaining some insight into the process and thoughts behind this film. And if these articles and images about standing up for what you believe in are you getting you excited and all pro-active feeling – then you’re ready to take a look at our ‘How to Make a Wheatpaste’ article!
Remember, we are always looking for contributions, thoughts and feedback (especially if you like us)… If you have an idea for an article, an opinion, an interview – anything! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. And of course, what’s the internet with out Facebook? You can find us and like us and maybe even love us, at www.facebook.com/artwolfezine
Enjoy the issue and come back for more! We will be getting very festive in Issue #3!

This photograph of the Katatura Community Art’s Centre was taken by Helen Harris. It is the cover photo for Issue #2. Isn’t it beautiful?
PS. In the hardcopy of Issue #2, we accidentally swopped the captions of our centre-spread with their image. So if you could imagine them the other way around (if you ever come across the zine) – that would be great. OH ZINE-MAKING, the ghosts of layout drama continue to haunt us. Excuse our upstart amateurish mistakes, we’re desperately trying to be fancy!
