We make zines zines zines, analogue or digital.
This workshop is not about skillz.
It’s about what you are up to.
It’s about what gives you drive, what occupies you (personally as well as worldly), where do you see your power and what keeps you down?
Also, this course is going to transition all these questions into real life:
How do we apply all this to how we really want to work with?
How do we relate our positions in society as designers or artists?
We are going to create a room together in which we can work productively and without pressuring ourselves.
I will be there for you as a host and for guidance (up to a certain point of course).
Also I will provide the zines with you.
Lets try to produce as free as possible without any kind of judgment.
Remember: You are accountable for the environment in the room, you are responsible for giving the content more space and value.
Also: You are the content.
I'm happy to see every face, no matter which skills you bring to the table.
You can take whatever you want with you to work with.
