make.aZINE fair (Vienna, 20th - 26th May 2013)

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.

CALL: Invitation for Participation – D.I.Y. (queer-)feminist festival (Vienna, June 6-9, 2013)

Dear all!
We would like to invite you to participate in our self-organized D.I.Y. queer*_feminist super cool festival of awesomeness against Western bias :-) The idea to organize a queer_feminist festival originated among a small group of migrants* from this imaginary place called (South)Eastern Europe, looking for a space where they could engage in a critique of the hegemony of Western queer_feminist concepts and focus on self-representation, empowerment and networking. Since then, people from many different contexts and backgrounds agreed to work together to organize the festival. Our mutual goal is to bring together activists, artists, performers and (other) interested people from various feminist and LGBTIAQQ**- spaces and regions out of (South)Eastern contexts. Literally, we want to create a space for debating and examining representations, differences and imbedded power-relations.
