Glasgow Zine Fest
Women, Act, Make, Archive, Reset

Sat 14 April 2018

In this panel discussion – which takes place a hundred years on since women’s radical postcards, placards, badges and agitprop feminist art actions helped secure the vote for women – Cultural and Art Historian Sarah Lowndes, Glasgow Women’s Library Co-founder Adele Patrick, and Zine and Campaign Archivist Elizabeth O’Brien will be sharing their thinking about the links between (zine) art, activism, and archiving the revolutionary.

The panel will be exploring the gender politics of ‘weeding’ in collecting, what makes it into information institutions, what is missing from the records of countercultural art making, and how radical museums and archives can inspire and conserve the work of generations of zine makers. This session will also ask – who is missing from zine world? Whose work needs to be prioritised, collected, and why? And how can ‘zines in the archive’ remain live and inspiring?

All screenings at Glasgow Zine Fest will have subtitles and talks/panel discussions will have BSL interpretation.

Ticketing: Glasgow Zine Fest are using a sliding scale ticketing system this year. You can choose to pay £0 to £2, £4 to £6, £8 for all events, workshops and talks that require tickets.

Please be honest with yourself and your financial situation. If you purchase a ticket at the lowest end of the scale when you could afford the higher ticket prices, it makes it harder for us to provide financial flexibility to those who need it. More information here.
