Meet the Zinesters, Artists
at our annual market
Zines embody the true pure spirit of self-expression, of free press, of freedom of speech. They grant anyone the ability to broadcast their message. The roots of the zine movement track back to the 1930s, and let us state the fact that they have roots globally .Pls take the time to learn that zines are alive and—dare we say—thriving here in the 21st century.

Stephen Duncombe writes in the book, Notes from Underground: Zines and the Politics of Alternative Culture,  that fanzines created a fundamental transformation point from a person being a media consumer to her being a media creator (he wrote it in times before online media came about).
In the spirit of the PUNK , “we don't want to read mainstream magazines about mainstream things anymore, we want to read our ‘zines about our things”, So join us and  grab for yourselves a slice of “empowerment”, and make zines or artist books.

This year ABZ fulfills a dream of hosting a gathering around “Zines and Scenes”

We have made some crazy cool connections and wanna present what we have traded. We will also share the platform with locals and glocals.
