Error in a zine? There is no such thing!

A zine is a small, simple form of publication, often published, printed and created by one's own means, often with disregard for any publishment rules. Through the years zines had been associated with subcultures and social minorities. Today in modern culture they are synonymous with independent publishing and a perfect mean of expression for all kinds of artists: poets, photographers, illustrators - both amateurs and professionals. On our workshops, we will focus on the DIY culture - do it yourself - putting emphasis on the biggest, in our opinion, value of the zines - their absolutely democratic nature. Participants will learn how to make copies of their own publication, using commonly available methods, and how to turn errors and technological shortcomings into artistic value. Those workshops will teach that every creator sets their own rules and that diversity is where the magic of the zine phenomenon lies.
