Chain ZIne Artworks

International artists

Remember the days when people sent letters/emails with some kind of instructions to one another and then send it to the next person? We reintroduced a version of it with the A MAZE. Chain Zine in the weeks before A MAZE. / Berlin - Total Digital. We invited people to collaboratively create a zine with Nathalie Lawhead’s Electric Zine Maker. We’ve sent out instructions to people on different continents who worked on a page and then send it off to the next person of their choice. We hoped the pages would travel far and wide giving us a glimpse of the world and creators in it before coming back to A MAZE. Completed zines have returned! In this session we have invited people from around the world who took part in our A MAZE. Chain Zine experiment and talk a bit more about the zines, the pages and the creators! Here they are now, in the A MAZE. / SPACE.
