ZINE V.ITRINE | international zine open call

16. 05. 2019, Kino Šiška

The DobraVaga Gallery is also celebrating the third anniversary of its activity and varied creative happening by inviting artists to participate in the ZINE V.ITRINE | 5th International Zine Open Call.

Zines are booklets, most often self-published DIY releases, printed in limited editions and with low production costs. They have appeared as an essential medium of certain subcultures in the past century, from sci-fi fans to punk. Today, they differ according to the variety of functions, production and appearance, remaining present as an ever-evolving form of communication and expression of collective and individual identities. The zine’s appeal lies in its tactility, simplicity, directness and experimentation.

The zine selected from the received submissions will be featured in 2019 in an exhibition at Kino Šiška (supported with an exhibition fee in the gross amount of 300 Euros), including zine print coproduction in the agreed amount (up to 30 copies). Other outstanding zines will get the opportunity for a solo paid exhibition within the ZINE VITRINE programme at the DobraVaga Gallery. ZINE VITRINE is a programme of zine exhibitions, a zine reading room and zine workshops that has been taking place at the DobraVaga Gallery since the beginning.

The submitted zines will be reviewed by a committee of artists and curators active in the field of zines: artist and photographer Lucija Rosc, curator and gallerist Bea Istvánkó (ISBN books+gallery), and curator and culturologist Lara Plavčak.

Submissions should include:

* your name, surname, contact (e-mail), website (optional);

* the name(s) of the zine author(s), zine title and year of issue;

* a short description of the zine or project (500 characters with spaces).

Submission deadline: 1 September 2019

You can send the zines via post to: Galerija DobraVaga, Adamič-Lundrovo nabrežje 5, 1000 Ljubljana (marked: ZINE VITRINE), or bring them to DobraVaga during opening hours. The authors will be notified of the results in October 2019 via e-mail. All received zines will be included in the ZINE VITRINE public reading room at the DobraVaga Gallery and published on the ZINE VITRINE website. Received zines will not be returned.
