Shape & Situate: Posters of Inspirational European Women zine issue #2 just came back from the printers looking great and it's all ready to make it's debut at Zine Fest! 2011 on June 25th at The Women's Library, London.
Thank you so much to all the contributors for their brilliant posters: Erica Smith, Rachael House, Melanie Maddison, Michelle Mendonca, Anna Knowles, Verity Hall, Kathryn Taylor, Nina Nijsten, Peter Willis, Emily Aoibheann, Ed Webb-Ingall, Cara Corden, Patrick Staff, R Clout, Kathleen Teadrinker, Marylou Anderson, Flo Brooks, Charlotte Cooper, Cendrine Rovini, Gladys Badhands, James Clayton, and John Davison.
Shape & Situate is a zine of posters made by artists and DIY creative folk within Europe, each poster highlighting the (often hidden) history and lives of radical inspirational women and collectives from Europe, as a way of connecting us with the past, the present, and to help us to make sure that there will be a future which contains such creative and pioneering female action and activity. The zine aims to activate feminist cultural memory, to inspire in the present and to visually bring women’s social and political history to life.
After Zine Fest! I'll work on getting the zine available for purchase (online, and via distros), and I'll post links on here once I know what they are.
[N.B: I also collected the large Shape & Situate posters today that will be exhibited as part of Zine Fest! -- I'll be posting a sneak peak of those soon as I'm thrilled at how they turned out :) -- See the Zine Fest! link above for details on all the exhibitions which will feature at the event.]
