The Other Zinefest



On 1 December 2019, The Other Book presents the first official zinefest in The Hague: The Other Zinefest. Exhibitor applications are now open!

Bringing zines back to the underground, The Other Zinefest takes over the basement of The Grey Space in the Middle. We are looking for exhibitors who work with the radical zine format: zines of several pages, printed in black & white, folded and stapled together. Unlike art books or magazines, zines are first and foremost about social networking (both local and global). Made with a do-it-yourself attitude, their content often departs from personal interests. Any subject matter may be addressed and as long as the basic format is maintained, there are no restrictions with regard to technique or discipline. The Other Zinefest offers a platform for radical zinemakers from The Netherlands and abroad, who want to exhibit and sell their work and exchange stories, ideas, and experiences with fellow-zinesters.
