Bringing together publishers, artists, publishing collectives, bookstores, magazines, galleries and various non-profit organizations producing on art books and fanzines, Fanzineist Vienna aims to bring these productions, which are realized on a wide publication scale, to the visitors. +400 publications consisting of art, design, literature, comics, theory, architecture, sociology, music, lgbti+ and queer publications come together in virtual art book and zine exhibitions.
With our online format, Fanzineist host 105 artists and publishers from 35 countries (e.g., French Polynesia, Argentine, Japan, United States, New Zealand, Spain and many more). In this way, Fanzineist Vienna evolves into an online international celebration of independent art and fanzine publishing.

“Can Yalcinkaya is a Turkish-Australian academic in media studies, an artist and editor. He has been an active participant in zine, alternative comics and underground music scenes in Turkey and Australia. He is the founder and editor of the political comics collective Dirençizgiroman (Resist Comics), a creative community inspired by the Occupy Gezi Park movement in Turkey. This talk will focus on the use of zines and comics in activist movements, with examples from around the world, as well as Can’s own experiences as a comics activist.”
BluRaven C. Houvener (one of the Fanzineist artists and publishers) animated and edited the psychedelic rock music of Nicodemus and Matchez. We are happy to share these two videos with you for the first time at Fanzineist Vienna.
“I’m Gonna Get You” By Matchez
“Born from the Out Anthology, “I’m Gonna Get You” heralds from “Out of the Gutter and Slightly On Tilt”, preceded by “Out of the Gutter the New Adventure” and “Out”.
Keep your eyes peeled for “Out 4” coming to a sound system near you!”
“Devils Live Inside My Hair” 2022 feat Jake & St.Nic
“Originally released in 2009, the original “Devil’s Live Inside My Hair” music video told the tale of a tired St.Nic on a multi day work bender as he was known to do. It was the third in the series of Music videos done jointly by he and myself and if you ask me it is one of the best we did…
So why the update/remake you ask? Well that’s for a number of reasons. First off I starred in the intro but totally missed the opportunity to have it be a Jake(from the It’s Just another day comics) tie in. That and my acting left something to be desired, especially since I too was on a several day work bender. In addition some scenes were blurry and could be served well by a touch up. And on top of that, in spite of Matchez’s involvement with the song, his name and/or presence never made it to the video. All these things warranted this touch up.
I hope you enjoy it all, from the animated intro, to the trippy visuals, and that out there sound you can only get from a Nicodemus & Matchez tune!”

The founders of Draw Down Books, Christopher Sleboda and Kathleen Sleboda will talk about their latest book, I Got Something to Say — Poster Inventory, 2013–2021, using the project as a way to reflect on poster-making as creative expression and the importance of ephemeral publications for cultural history. Poster-making has served as a tool and creative arena for many publishers seeking to raise awareness about their work. This talk will also explore how to plan and execute a collaborative publication that brings together different voices and perspectives.

Relax and take your time
‘Browsing through the book Haiku while listening to the composition inspired by the photos’. The prelude is a airy way of waving away ‘Summer’ (the bird you hear is the oriole), making room for Winter, and at the same time introducing myself to the viewers. The video Haiku has the duration of the composition Isolatie – Insulation, which is 13 minutes’.
Composer: Geert Schoonbeek de Vlaming.
Violinist: Bob van der Ent.
“L. Loves Art Books contemplates self-publications”
L. Loves Art Books is an initiative for self-published photobooks, founded by the artist Lia Nalbantidou in 2020. It is based in Thessaloniki-GR.
In this recording Lia Nalbantidou and Nikos Kachrimanis are introducing the LLAB manifesto, talking about the reasons for its formation, the aims and aspirations of their collaborative efforts and of course, about photobooks.
“Chilean artist, illustrator and teacher. I have had individual exhibitions in Chile, Peru and Mexico. Fairs are the preferred dissemination format for my work.The narratives in my fanzines are autobiographical, they are graphic sequences that respond to events and reflections on my existence. The female figure is central in my work, it exhibits scars and hair, it calls for sanity, it defends the body and nature as a territory free from conquest.”
Zoomk-Ru-TU is a performance and music group founded by Deniz Beser, Veysel Denec and Başak Sıla Bengisu on December 2011. The group is formed on disciplines such as improvised music, dance and fanzine production. The biggest passion of Zoomk-Ru-TU is expressing themselves in a child-like & carefree way. Performances include guest stars and dancers.
Performing compositions that emerge with determined improvisation, with psychedelic and punk sounds, the band likes to make noise and have fun on stage.
Between 2011 and 2016, the group performed at venues such as Pasaj, Ağaç Ev, Dark Bronx, Space Debris, Haliç Congress Center, Peyote and Arkaoda and in fairs such as Fanzineist: Zine Fest Of Istanbul, Ipa Istanbul Performance Festival, Art Bosphorus Contemporary Art Fair and MultiRAID Festival in Istanbul, Turkey.
In 2013, they released their demo albums in fanzine-demo format from Heyt be! Music.
In 2017, Zoomk-Ru-Tu were part of the movie project ”New Istanbul Dream” by Kamen Stoyanov. They did movie soundtrack and performed in the movie. This project featured in GPL Contemporary, Vienna and WRO Media Art Biennale in Wroclaw, Poland.

“Nostalgia in the Periphery: Panel Discussion”
Nostalgia in the Periphery is a limited edition bundle of serigraphy and digital prints from a diverse range of writers and artists who investigate the golden age of global popular culture from the perspective of those who have been left outside. The personal essays and short stories in the project ask discomforting questions about who gets to remember and who gets to be forgotten.
The photographic subject of the walls represents the metaphor of the barriers, that the human Ego has raised and still raises around itself to keep the other, the stranger, the diversity and the unknown at a distance. Hence, the title of “Borders”, a poorer symbol of what separates and alienates, symbol of any passive or aggressive attitude, as opposed to socialization and altruism, qualities that should, on the other hand, distinguish man from any other animal.
The puppets come from Richard Tuttle’s writings Tennessee Seed Pearl, featured in Richard Tuttle: What Is the Object?
The puppeteers are students at the Bard Graduate Center and the puppets are objects from the exhibition Richard Tuttle: What Is the Object?

One-man surrealist punk sound! Bunu Sen İstedin, with his stage make-up and costume, displays a naive but equally violent humorous punk stance in his performances. The band, which is the music of those who think they are in heaven until their feet are caught on the artificial grass carpet on the ground during pogo, joins the world from Istanbul. Presenting traumatic children’s songs as acoustic trash, Bunu Sen İstedin, meets the audience with his unique style.
