Image of a swan holding a rope, below them is a person with their eyes closed, and beside them is a person carrying a flag. There is text stating: 'The internet is a powerful communication tool for us as an international culture, but the internet isn't our culture; our culture is in garage laboratories, on our easels, in our quills, typewriters, and word processors. Our culture is on the streets, in clubs, on city rooftops, in suburban parlours.

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.
