dzīve (n.) normal things that people think but don’t talk about; also called life


Very limited edition of Benji Knewman x Zuzeum pins featuring Latvian art emoji of Auseklis Baušķenieks.

‘Recluse’ (1957) is, according to his own classification, the artist’s ‘internal self-portrait’. Baušķenieks has always paid particular attention to detail, yet in this painting the watch on his left wrist shows no time.

Made in Riga.

Life that
you can read.

Benji Knewman is a man, around 42 years old. He’s trying to be genuine, and it seems he sometimes manages. Just like his grandfather who used to say: “Ben, how you spend your day is how you spend your life!” Currently Benji Knewman is more everywhere than anywhere. Mostly on the road. He’s still in search of his own perfect day. While looking for it, he curates a biannual bookazine telling stories about people who don’t pretend and who can simply be. Covering a myriad of vocations and lifestyles, as well as geographical locations, they’re living proof that you don’t have to be conventional to have a good life.
In the end, everything is going to be great.
