Published in Turkey and with a long list of contributors from across the Middle East and far beyond, Year Zero presents a hugely varied selection of underground music, fashion, art and more. This issue is themed ‘process’, deconstructing the concept into six different stages that are visualised on the contents page as a sort of lunatic venn diagram, showing the relationships between different stories in a series of ellipses that are themselves suggestive of big zeros sprawling across the pages. The message here is clear — there is no beginning and there is no end; there is just the process, so surrender yourself to it and see where it takes you.

What is Year Zero?
Year Zero is an Istanbul-based independent platform, founded in 2018 to examine emerging global subcultures.

What makes it different to the rest?
Our endless curiosity, and our non-hierarchical working and presenting models, reporting from the East, West, and in between.

Who makes Year Zero?
We welcome a new editor-at-large to collaborate with us for every issue. The main team consists of me, Emine Ersoy, Öykü Özünal, Ece Özel, Enes Güç and Zeynep Schilling.

Who reads it?
Curious friends of friends.

Why do you work in magazines?
To capture the tensions between generations, between tradition and what could come next.

Aside from the print magazine, what else are you involved in?
We have an online radio based in Istanbul.

What would you change about Year Zero if you could?
Printing on 100% recycled paper.

Where do you see Year Zero in five years?
