For all you zine lovers
on November 11, 2009
Get ready all you zine readers! From Friday, a zine mart will be at the Berkeley Art Museum for only two weeks featuring over 2,000 zines from around the world. For those of you who aren’t zine savvy — “zines are basically self-published information with writing about everything and anything,” said Rock Paper Scissors volunteer Marella Pederson. She said that zines can teach you “how to write a book, make your own farm, about composting, how to get your music out to the public. You can pick up a zine about the weirdest things,” said Pederson.
The art collective Rock Paper Scissors on Telegraph is partnering up with the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archives to host the event. The opening reception will be on Friday, November 13th from 7:30 p.m. and will feature a conversation with zine writers Ari Marcopoulos and Paul Schiek.
The zine mart runs through November 22 during museum hours.
