„Grössere Reichweite, weniger Haptik“
Fanzineist Vienna takes place as an online fair this year to attract the attention of a wider, global audience. Online visitors have the opportunity to see more than 600 publications in a 3D Gallery. The virtual exhibition opens on July 26th at fanzineist.com.
Fanzineist Vienna, which brings together small and independent publishers, has set itself the goal of making zines and art books more accessible to its audience through exhibitions, workshops and lectures whilst introducing newcomers to the culture of self-publication. In addition, concerts and video streams across platforms are offered to visitors.
The virtual art book & zine exhibition takes place in the form of a 3D gallery and offers artists & editors a virtual display for their publications. Visitors can take a look at a wide variety of original publications that are also available for purchase from the exhibitors directly.
Artists can use this virtual event as an exhibition space even if a physical event is not possible in their country. In the virtual exhibition, the viewer can control his movements by keyboard or touch, zoom in and receive additional information about the publications and artists.
The public program consists of zine workshops by Mollie Underwood & Holly Meadows-Smith (Irrelevant Press), talks from various artists & international publishers such as Draw Down Books, Paula Minelgaite, Caterina Ragg & Adriana Monsalve (Homie House Press), Christian Reister, Alexander Chernavskiy, Irma Boom, music performances by Reptilians From Andromeda, Ivan Usen, Allen Hulsey, Monika Bulanda feat. Can Ömer Uygan, video presentations by DUES, Nikolaos Kachrimanis, Maya Strobbe (Ramsdam Books) and many more.
The Fanzineist Artbook & Zine Fair is free, online and open to the public. The fair will take place across different platforms like on fanzineist.com, Youtube, Instagram and Zoom. The full schedule and details are to be announced. Check out fanzineist.com for updates and ways to get in touch or support the fair.
