Crimea is not just about politics. Crimea is Artek.

Artek was an international pioneer camp on the black sea in the town of Hurzuf on the Crimean peninsula. It was established in 1925 and flourished in the Soviet times. Going to Artek was a privilege for any child and an experience that no one ever forgets. Friends you find in Artek are forever.

The zine is a reedit of a personal archive of my friend, who went to Artek in 1982. The archive consisted of a diary, a book of songs, postcards, photographs and some scraps. The zine collects the most touching, genuine and amusing memories and plays around with bits and pieces.
