The zine library will become a reflection form for the Creative Industries’ Academy’s authors and guests.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. An exhibition based on the results of the third Creative Industries’ Academy’s creative laboratory is prepared in the Norilsk Development Agency’s creative space. The participants found out what zines are and studied their production’s technology under the supervision of photographer, artist and independent publisher Lena Holkina.

The idea to make zines in Norilsk arose as a response to a request for a non-standard way to preserve memories of events that took place in the ARN’s creative space. The zine library will become a reflection form for festivals, workshops and meetings’ authors and guests, and will help to keep the best moments in memory.

Zines (short for English ‘magazine’) are amateur small-circulation publications on any topic and in any form. They arose from the non-professional press popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and dissident movements’ pamphlets and leaflets. Their distinctive features are manual production and small circulation. Modern zine culture contains many themes. Anyone can become an author. You just need to be passionate about the topic and have a desire for self-expression to do this.

More than 100 publications await guests at the exhibition. Zines from Chelyabinsk, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Tolyatti and other Russian cities will join the Norilsk residents zines prepared within the creative laboratory. This amount of zine culture will be presented in Norilsk for the first time. The exhibition’s curator is the Yekaterinburg artist Sergey Poteryaev, who works with photography, installation, video and sound.
