Adults and children sometimes have boards in their bedrooms or living-rooms on which they pin pieces of paper: letters, snapshots, reproductions of paintings, newspaper cuttings, original drawings, postcards. On each board all the images belong to the same language and all are more or less equal within it, because they have been chosen in a highly personal way to match and express the experience of the room’s inhabitant. Logically, these boards should replace museums.

Other-Worlds-Poster

The OTHER WORLDS ZINE FAIR is happening in two weeks! For those who haven’t heard, Other Worlds was set up as an alternative to the MCA Zine Fair, which is happening on the same day. A few of us Sydney zinesters decided to boycott the MCA fair due to MCA’s relationship with a company called Transfield, who operate services in Australia’s offshore detention centres. These detention centres have been described as an “experiment in the active creation of horror to deter people from trying” [to seek asylum] in Australia. We don’t want our zines to have anything to do with a company that profits from this bad business. From a small group of individual zinesters we’re now a fifty table strong zine fair. We hope you can come, and help spread the word – the poster above was designed by Nicky Minus!

 

 

55 Sydenham Rd Marrickville NSW 2204

55, Sydney’s only gallery, have launched a pozible thing to raise money for their rent and stuff.

Without 55 Dexter Fletcher would not have been able to show the overly large Careers in Retail posters or ‘pun based anti-landlord art’ (thanks for that description, Lou) An A-Z of the Non-Property Owning Classes Represented as a Paint Chart, nor would many other less stupid art works by better looking, more serious artists have seen the light of day.

GIVE THEM MONEY. If you pledge to buy one of the lucky dip t-shirts you might even get an exclusive Dexter Fletcher design! WOW!
