pARTisan Magazine

The pARTisan project is a media project, which includes pARTisan magazines about Contemporary Belarusian Culture (since 2002), the pARTisan’s Collection series (albums by Belarusian artists, since 2009) and web-portal (sinse 2012).

“A Partisan is someone who always hides (‘hide-and-seek’ is the only national game of Belarus); a Partisan is someone who always says about herself: ‘I am absent’; a Partisan is someone who shows herself only at the time of diversion (in our case, intellectual or aesthetic), and then disappears again in the absence of herself”.

Valancin Akudović “Apologists of the Absence”

During of our activity we realized a lot of cooperative projects with foreign partners. For example, pARTisan #14’2011 was supported by “Kanton Aargau”  program (Switzerland) and talked about Belarusian-Swiss cross points; pARTisan #16-17 as well as A Report about Belarusian independent culture and NGO was a result of cooperate with “KulturaEnter” magazine (Poland). In 2013 pARTisan  became a partner of the international project “Report on Construction of a SpaceshipModule” covered the archives of post-soviet East-European countries with big exhibition in New Museum in New York where were used the material from our archive. In 2014 photo.tapeta edition (German) was published the special book about pARTisan’s activity (Artur Klinau “PARTISANEN. Kultur_macht_Belarus”). Since 2014  “pARTisan” is member of Eurozine nerwork.
