Comix and zines at F-word Festival in Amsterdam

IMG_5048webLast weekend I went to Amsterdam for the F-word Festival (second edition). It was awesome again: tasty food, a big zine table, good bands to discover, interesting workshops and talks, nice people to meet, autumn sun, the perfect location… and the amazing feminist comix exhibition “Drawing out of the box”! I was so honoured to be asked to include my own comics in this exhibition. All the comics that I saw there, were so impressive and inspiring, in diverse creative styles, covering a range of topics related to feminism… don’t miss it! The exhibition can be seen till October 12th in MKZ in Amsterdam. Check the website of F-word for more info.

On Sunday, there was a presentation/panel by some of the participating comic artists: Anat, Justine, Mary and myself. Have a look at the exhibition… (I’m sorry the photos are of low quality, the artwork itself is much greater in real life!)

The Amsterdam zine & comic collective Zsa Zsa Zine put up a zine table at F-word and soon lots of other zines were added:

I’m already looking forward to next year’s F-word! But first there’s Et Biiim in Lille, L-festival in Brussels, Zine Fest Berlin…
