ZIne Show June 1st, Anthology Books

category dublin | arts and media | event notice author Thursday May 11, 2006 11:37author by Anto Loserdom - punk rockerauthor email punkcyclist at dublin dot ie Report this post to the editors

Loserdom and The Forgotten Zine Archive Present: Zine Show – A celebration of Zines and Do-It-Yourself publishing in the form of an exhibition of zines/zine art (both Irish and international). Opening Night incorporates readings by zine-writers, poetry and music!
Exhibition from May 30th-June 24th. Opening Night with readings/music Thursday 1st June, 6.30-8.00pm.
AT: Anthology Books, Meeting House Square, Temple Bar, Dublin 2.

Zines are lively wide-awake publications made for passion instead of profit. The underground press of the new millennium – they can be xeroxed or printed; small or big; written, typed, typeset or drawn; and on any subject the creator cares about.

Derived from Science Fiction fan-magazines of the 1930's, with the advent of Punk in the late 70’s Zines emerged as a mongrel form of publishing in their own right.
Zines have been published here in Ireland since March 1977. While authors and publications have moved on over the years, the activity itself has persisted right up to the present day, despite the advent of the internet, e-zines and blogs.
At present in Dublin and Ireland, distribution avenues for zines are becoming more and more limited. Many of the independent record shops (the traditional places for locating zines) have little interest in stocking zines due to their low monetary return and small circulation figures; comic shops too eschew a similar view. This event promises to highlight zines as a cultural entity of relevance, by showing the scope of creativity, freedom of expression and realities documented alternate to those of the mainstream media and national cultural institutions.
The exhibition will be of a collection of covers from the Forgotten Zine Archive displayed along the main wall of the bookstore, alongside a number of handouts and freesheets to take home, while the opening event on Thursday June 1st will attempt to mirror the mixed-content, cut-and paste aesthetic of zines, by presenting a range of activities from people involved in the local zine/underground scene: readings by local “zinesters”, acoustic music and more!
To include: Readings by zinesters: Stephen Boris Beloney, Conor King Of The Sad People and more; music by Gary Fitz of The Sick and Indignant Song Society, and ex-The Great Western Squares, who will be playing acoustic versions of songs more in the line of his great 90’s hardcore-punk band Pincher Martin.

I heard you on Newstalk plugging the Zineshow. Good to see alternative media getting some spotlight on the mainstream airwaves. I hope the web doen't cause the death of print either!

Look forward to the show
