Apu is a 37 years old queer non-binary punk, organic gardener/farmer and collage diy artist workin’ and livin’ on a organic seed breeding farm near Bremen/northern germany. She’s creatin’ collage artwork for more than 18 years now (doin’ a lot of coops with zines, bands, solidarity projects, collectives…) and is part of a small diy art collective named Theo Collectivehttps://theobeam.wordpress.com/about/
Under the name Theo, we work on projects that trigger our passion, all is diy, self made, hand bound, not perfect, but made with lots of love. Theo gives us a voice in this world & our works may be described as beautiful, but also have a touch of roughness, alternative & radical influence. The world is not perfect, and changes can already emerge from a small collage, a few words, a little book.
Our main project is publishing our hand bound Theo pocket agenda every year, for the past 8 years now. Hand bound and in a small edition. Next to that we sell some postcards & books with Apu’s collages, give workshops & support good projects if we have some leftover money.
