How Zines influence society
Submitted by Srilakshmi (@sriiyer89) on Sep 30, 2018
I love zines. Its a a form of creative expression, and it can entirely be a single individual’s contributionn. Its aking to blog, but only it is more creative and tangible. I often find zines communicating the voice of an activist. It creates a strong impression about a societal perpective. It motivates creative expression on a sensitive topic.
But I often find that it’s reach is limited to pop-ups. But that’s ok. Pop-up evennts invite people from various backgrounds. So these provocative zines are able to reach the common people as well.
With it’s provocative character, and pretty broad reach, I wonder how such zines channge one’s perpectives, and influence one’s lifestyles. I wonder how further can zines reach, and how can we use zines for deeper penetrationn of covnersations arounnd sensitive/taboo topics.
- What are zines
- History of zine creations & its various usage
- Examples for various zine artists in India
- What do they have to say about zines
- What does the future of zines look like
Therir listening aids.
I am prposinng this topic for someone else to speak. So hopefully a zine illustrator/publisher could be a good speaker for this session.
