This exhibition applies the term “art-ZINE”to ZINEs published as a form of art and examines them as a new stage for creative expression. Unlike individually produced artworks, ZINEs are usually published in plural numbers. They are also distinct from the “art book.” As a medium that directly connects the publisher and readers through a personal distribution route, without going through the established book distribution system, the art-ZINE enables new approaches to communication. From this, new possibilities for art expression are also expected to come.

Throughout the run of the exhibition, ZINEs gathered through public appeal will be displayed on shelves in the venue. Our aim is to put them out for everyone to look at, as we contemplate together the art-ZINE and its appeal.
