☝️ > Ehm… What is a (Fan)Zine?
Zines (/ˈziːn/ zeen) are independently published booklets. Culturally and historically, they served as an influential outlet for content considered to be too niche, risky, or rebellious – compared to more traditional or commercial forms of publication. A Zine can include paintings, drawings, poems, stories, basically any form of creative expression possible on paper… A Zine is only limited by your own imagination.
? > What will be the focus of this MOBzine?
Let’s talk about COCOONING: being locked in is something we are not used to. Unfamiliar feelings arise, emotions we might have never experienced before… This current situation that we are living in exceeds us. At times we might be okay with it, accept it, and other times we might be confused and feel restless.
We know art and creativity are not the solutions, but we believe they can help us pull through all of this. One thing we do know for sure: it’s always better when we’re together.
Through the creation of this Fanzine, we want to celebrate our creative community, and give room and opportunity to all of you to share your thoughts, inspirations, struggles, and realities with one another in a time of isolation and confinement.
