Teaser Image: 

make.aZINE - zine fair
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.

The Other Woman (Radio, Podcast)

Location

London
United Kingdom
51° 30' 0.5472" N, 0° 7' 34.4496" W

Statement:
The Other Woman is a radio show that has a home on the UK's Amazing Radio as an all-female new music playlist. Ruth Barnes presents the show and has enlisted music journalist Jude Rogers over the years to come on and wax lyrical about her favourite musical femmes. Piney Gir is a musician who has played many a session for The Other Woman and after the last one she said, 'Hey! Why don't we do a podcast?!' So this is the result. Sick of being patronised by shows 'for women' that really don't speak to any of us, we thought we'd do our own. PG enlisted her showbiz buddy Stef Schadenfreude and the rest is history. Music, culture, what's on, guests and general chit chat for discerning women (and men too)...
