I was in urgent need of a pause from everything, as I’m sure we all are, so I decided to visit (or escape to) a witch town with two friends.
Short visit to Berlin (Sept 2019)
Last week, I went to Berlin where I visited one of my favourite zine places: the Archive of Youth Culture! Thanks to Guiseppina and her colleagues for the warm welcome and interesting chat! This place is a pure treasure cave so be sure to stop by when you are in Berlin.
Swansea Zine Fest and Bristol – some photos of my trip to the UK
I recently went to Swansea Zine Fest in Wales followed by a short trip to Bristol and I would like to share some photos of my trip:

Swansea is situated – you guessed it- by the sea, so I had a nice long walk along the beach there on the evening of my arrival.
The zine fest was amazing with a big focus on perzines and zines made by queers and women. I had the chance to complete some of the perzine series that I’ve been enjoying in the past and also sold (and especially traded) quite well at my own zine table. I went home with a huge stash of fresh reading materials…

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!
