Fanzineist Vienna takes place as an online fair this year to attract the attention of a wider, global audience. Online visitors have the opportunity to see more than 400 publications in a 3D Gallery. The virtual exhibition opens on August 11th at fanzineist.com.
Fanzineist Vienna, which brings together small and independent publishers, has set itself the goal of making zines and art books more accessible to its audience through exhibitions, workshops and lectures whilst introducing newcomers to the culture of self-publication. In addition, concerts and video streams across platforms are offered to visitors.
And bringing together publishers, artists, publishing collectives, bookstores, magazines, galleries and various non-profit organizations producing on art books and fanzines, Fanzineist Vienna aims to bring these productions, which are realized on a wide publication scale, to the visitors. +400 publications consisting of art, design, literature, comics, theory, architecture, sociology, music, lgbti+ and queer publications come together in virtual art book and zine exhibitions. With our online format, Fanzineist Vienna evolves into an online international celebration of independent art book and zine publishing.
The virtual art book & zine exhibition takes place in the form of a 3D gallery and offers artists & publishers a virtual display for their publications. Visitors can take a look at a wide variety of original publications that are also available for purchase from the exhibitors directly. In the virtual exhibition, the viewers can control their movements by keyboard or touch, zoom in and receive additional information about the publications and artists.
