About a month ago, the second edition of Zine Happening organised by Les VoiZines took place in the Lousbergpark in Ghent. Gudrun, Jo, Mawy, Hannah, the feminist collective FEL and I were tableing together with our zines and mini-zines and Evie also brought her new book Feminisme – een nieuw begin.
Most zines at the zine fair were of the arty expensive vein, but we found some nice DIY treasures too. I especially liked the table of the zinesters of Cosmic Kiss from Lille. They added some punky witchy riot grrrl style.
Apart from zines, comics and prints, there were vegan cakes and hot dogs for sale, yum!
Two days was quite exhausting, though it was nice to be there and meet lots of friends. Maybe next year I’ll try to encourage some punky and anarchisty zinesters to sign up for a table.
