Prnt Scrn Zine

In a time when we are constantly thinking about conserving resources, recycling, and reusing material, what place does print have? What role do zines play? How do we choose what to print when dealing with an overabundance of material waste? On the other hand, the possibility of digital obsolescence may make us value print even more.

Zines offer a unique way of exploring these questions through a print-based medium. Zines are short publications with a long history of being self-published and DIY!

“To respond to these questions, we’re asking: If you could only print eight A5 pages, what would they be?”

The collection comes out on 24 January 2024!
