Zine-making is a cultural movement and practice that has grown and developed all around the world over decades.
Consider zines a chapter of a visual story, a diary, or an object that can be used to hold the tiny thoughts and fleeting moments in life: the medium has been popular among many artists and photography enthusiasts for editing and sequencing their materials or even fragments from which.
From selecting and editing materials, creating layouts, to simple book-binding, this workshop is a hands-on introduction into the many layers of zine-making, and a rare opportunity to browse through ZINE COOP’s photo zine collection!
