London and Brighton visit – some photos

Some photos and memories from a trip to London and Brighton in February:

On a recent visit to the UK, I went to an exhibition at the London College of Communication about feminist zines called “The Gaze” together with a friend who’s into zines too. The zines were presented in a very original way as you can see. The stairs/stages allowed and encouraged visitors to sit on them and start reading the zines that were exhibited. The focus was on Latin American zines but there were zines from other places too.

Afterwards we visited the infoshop/bookshop of 56a. Happy to discover this place!

I donated some zines to the library of the London College of Communication as well as to the Feminist Library, one of my favourite places in London:

I had donated zines there before, like this oldy: Radix #2:

They have an amazing collection of books, zines and magazines such as these ones:

Almost invisible feminist street-art that I stumbled upon:

With my girlfriend and other friends I went to a nice concert at the Finsbury pub with bands such as Suggested Friends and Liines. Each of these bands has their unique style, making me want to share their music with everyone I know. Really, check them out!

I love typewriters and came across a few during my visit to Brighton:

And finally, a beautiful night view of the Pavilion in Brighton, that looks so inspiring graphically:
