On Thursday and Friday, April 17th & 18th, and one week after the Berlin show of The Photocopy Club, Urban Spree is happy to host the team of Zines of the Zone.

Zines of the Zone is a nomadic, not-for-profit library dedicated to self-published photobooks, photozines, and any DIY printed matter related to photography.

From January 2014 onwards, the mobile zinothek is travelling from it French homebase throughout Europe to display its collection to the public and collect new zines in each visited city, in order to increase the collection and meet new artists and the zine community. Since the beginning of the tour, the Zines of the Zone project has gathered a considerable response on the road, with lots of zines collected and great crowds visiting the show.

49 Tour Events are being scheduled until mid-June 2014, Berlin being midway with #27!

Come to Urban Spree to meet the ZoZ team, discover all the zines collected on the road, as well as those belonging to the permanent collection, and of course, bring your zine!!

Zines of the Zone / Open Call for Submissions

As part of the Zines of the Zone‘s wandering zinothek, Urban Spree is calling for zine submissions for its Berlin event.

For Berlin, we are looking for self-published, self-made photozines whose subject is street art, graffiti, urban subcultures (tattoo, skateboard etc…), street practices, underground…

Upon acceptance, your zine will be displayed at Urban Spree for the 2-day exhibition (17-18 April 2014) and thereafter will become part of the travelling permanent collection across Europe.

The project’s aim is to create a European network and generate a public collection out of these alternative practices.

From January 2014 onwards, the mobile zinothek’s will be be travelling throughout Europe to display its collection to the public and collect new zines in each visited city, in order to increase the collection and meet new artists.

The photobook phenomenon is increasing and becoming trendy: more and more photographers and graphic designers explore its possibilities, more and more galleries and collectors are attracted by these objects. As these objects are limited in their edition and as they are sold at a fair price, they appear to be quickly sold out – and for that reason, out of reach, hard to find.

The aim is to create a public collection so that anybody can have a look at this printed matter, whether it is sold out or not. This collection would act like a memory, a permanent place for the these quite-ephemeral objects: a place where the books continue to live, give inspiration, be manipulated and shared.

You can bring your zine directly at the gallery during the week/weekend or send it by post (Urban Spree – Revaler Str. 99 – 10245 Berlin).
