Kijosk is a showroom aiming to support, promote and showcase printmakers, illustrators and artists. Kijosk, which will also host various events such as workshops and talks, opens with the Mini Fanzine Archive exhibition from Turkey.
Mini zine exhibition
curated by Deniz Beser, displays some selected zines and other forms of self publications from Turkey, going back to the 1990s to today. “Istanbul had a rich heritage of independent publishing from the 1990s. If the London-based 1970s punk zine Sniffin’ Glue was an international milestone, Istanbul’s were Mondo Thrasho and Laneth. These DIY publications took different aesthetic routes and were claimed by different scenes, but both started with the same idea.*” In Turkey, that same idea is still going on and growing up with different approaches and interests on zines. Turkey has a long tradition of censorship but Zines are documents and snapshots of society without the censored voice.
