LES VOIZINES PRESENT: ZINE HAPPENING VII

30.04-01.05.2022

Small press, self-publishing and zine festival Zine Happening is back at Kunsthal Gent. More than just a book market, Zine Happening is a place where community is created and artists of all levels can network, have fun and learn from each other since 2015.

This year, international as well as local artists and zine makers will be showing their creations at the small press market in the main hall. Czech collective FŮD will be showing the best of socially engaged Czech illustration in an exhibition entitled "Pencil tip" in the Oud Huis.

Students from LUCA School of Arts will be showing their work in a group exhibition, and there will be zines made at De Krook's Zine Lab workshops on display, as well as a travelling bookshelf.

On Saturday evening there will be an indie comics award ceremony for the best short story : The Plastieken Plunk, awarded by a jury of professionals and organised by comics magazine Pulp De Luxe.

Take part in exciting free workshops or come and listen to inspiring artist talks, get tattooed or take a unique print home, win a work of art at the tombola or attend a glamorous award ceremony: there's something for everyone at Zine Happening VII. And if you can't get enough, see you next weekend at our friends' Ghent Art Book Fair!

Zine Happening - because supporting small presses and artists of all accomplishments is good for you and your community, and it's just nice! #SmallPressBigLove
