Singapore Art Book Fair and Squelch Zines jointly present Deszinenation: Ground Zero, an exhibition that examines the zine, a medium adopted by various subcultures and movements. Look forward to new works, an augmented reality showcase predicting the future of zines, interactive installations and more.
The exhibition will cultivate understanding on why the first zine publications came to the forefront, and how this medium has evolved from being tools of counter-culture to an experimental outlet for creative individuals to uncover new ways of expression.
Additionally, how relevant are zines in our expanding digital age? What defines a zine, and what are its limitations? Can a zine be digital? What happens when a traditionally gritty and self-initiated medium evolves into a product of high production cost in recent times?
Venue: Supernormal, 101 Desker Road, Singapore 209623
When: 29 Mar - 12 Apr 2019, 12pm - 7pm Tuesdays – Sundays
