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.
