Chili Com Carne
The Chili Com Carne association is a non-profit artists’ organization, whose functioning is established upon the free and spontaneous cooperation of its members. Since it’s foundation in 1995, we have promoted and developed a series of events in the field of the arts, such as the organization of exhibitions and publications. We favour a line of action that privileges the independence of the artist, in the context of the diversity in form and content that shapes the contemporary cultural and artistic scene. Since 2000, CCC is working mainly in edition publishing their members work in collective or individual books or zines. CCC publishes’ literature, comix, illustration, essays / critic and music supporting other members editorial projects and promoting DIY ethos and pathos. CCC has been in Sweden to represent it’s work in the Stockholm SPX, AltCom and the TRAUMA noise festivals. Authors have been special guests in some of these events, like Jucifer (SPX 2008) and Marcos Farrajota (AltCom 2010). In 2011 the travelling exhibition Futuro Primitivo was showed at ISV in Malmö as Primitiv Framtid.
