No parents no rules, just create.
Created to promote cross pollination between design communities Zine Club is a group of international designers trading work through the mail and on the internet. Engaging both print and digital platforms, we experiment with long distance collaboration as a tool to create new visual concepts.
Since 2013 Zine Club has been pursuing annual goals by creating and re-interpreting our personal projects as print zines, traded monthly, digitally presented media and exhibition. By 2015 we had accumulated dozens of print zines and documented many more as part of our tumblr. We then began to exhibit original works and our collected print library under a single annual concept. Our 2015 theme expanded into a printed publication, social media experiment with Google Chat and presentation at the Vancouver Art Gallery for The Vancouver Art/Book Fair 2015. This year we acknowledging the huge impact social media, gmail and the internet has had on our collaboration by interpreting works digitally, with the web specifically in mind by creating a web-zine.
Zine Club plans to trade zines in the mail and exhibit digital and print together in 2016.

Paranormal Activity (dis)Ambiguation
If we approach the supernatural as a technology of the un-know, what is it’s interface? What new possibilities can follow if we attempt to construct the supernatural as a technology of communal production? Zine Club 2015 explores this theme as a reading room, exhibition, art book and light box installation series at Project Space.
