Cut/paste is a small series of pop-up zine workshops in Stockholm

Zines are small, self-published booklets; they are playful, intimate, chaotic, weird, unruly, unpredictable, rebellious and celebratory. They offer unique possibilities for self-expression, participation and subversion which cut/paste aims to explore and channel into several collaborations with local Stockholm art practitioners working with zines.

Zine Activism
With Belinda Morén
Botkyrka Konsthall

Languages: Swedish, English
Description: In this workshop we propose to explore the activist roots of zine and take a moment when everyone can reflect on and express what inspires them, what disturbs them, what feels most important. The workshop will start with some creative warm-ups to get the inspiration flowing and start some discussions. After that, you are free to create whatever you want!

Visual Poetry
With Frida Häggström Gerdt
Index Foundation

Languages: Swedish, English
Description: This workshop takes text as its starting point, its material and inspiration. It invites you to collect fragments from unexpected sources, and to find new meaning in this act of gathering. It will take you through a series of quick writing exercises, and experiment with different ways of using text as a visual, graphic material in the zine format.

Re-Printed Matter
With RE
Index Foundation

Languages: Swedish, English
Description: Find and bring something that is already printed - it may be a postcard, advertisement, fruit sticker, t-shirt print, album cover, a recipe, lexicon, stamps... During the workshop, we will copy our material, re-work it and find ways of working together and with the material to assemble it into a collective zine. Each participant will bind their own copy.

Speculative Botany
With School in Common
Botkyrka Konsthall

Languages: English, Swedish
Description: We lack a language to communicate with and about plants. In this story-telling workshop, we will use speculation to imagine a plant narrative that does not consider human relations as a starting point. You are invited to work with text, images, drawings, and plant materials collected in the area around Botkyrka Konsthall to create a zine speculating about our multi-species futures!
