Künstlerhaus Vienna, Stachezimmer
20th - 26th May 2013

Zines represent an art form that looks back on a long history. The origin of zines can be traced back to the science fiction scene, but they also enjoyed great popularity within the British and American punk scene as well as during the feminist movement in the 1970s. Far from standartised mass media communication and knowledge dissemination, zines served as mouthpieces for minorities, fringe groups and subcultures. The project make.aZINE aims at making zines as an art form known and useable to a wide audience. The goal is to establish an international network that continuously conveys the actuality of zines as an art form and that shapes the appearance of this art form in a multifaceted way.

Strickistinnen - guerilla knitting Vienna

Teaser Image: 

Statement:
Wir, die Strickistinnen, sind eine Gruppe wollbegeisterter Aktivistinnen und seit Mai 2010 mit unseren Aktionen im öffentlichen Raum präsent. Wir sind der Meinung „abwarten hilft nicht, also stricken wir, ein an und gegen.“ Mit unseren Strickaktionen wollen wir auf politische Zusammenhänge aufmerksam machen, im Alltag überraschen, neue Blickwinkel auf Bekanntes eröffnen, zeigen, dass vieles auch ganz anders sein könnte und textile Techniken, die weiblich konnotiert und im Privaten verortet werden, in den öffentlichen Raum einbringen. Dabei spielt der Entstehungsprozess unserer Werke eine große Rolle. Wir haben große Freude an der Entwicklung von Gemeinschaftsprojekten, den Vorbereitungstreffen (die ebenfalls im öffentlichen Raum stattfinden und damit Teil des Projektes sind), den Strickgesprächen und besonders den Montageaktionen, die immer besonders aufregend und energiegeladen sind.
