FANFANZINEZINE – A fanzine fanzine
A Document/Performance/Publication about Fandom
21 October | 5pm-8.30pm
FREE, please bring materials to include in the Fanzine!
Performance Publication: Nick Murray
Fans are archivists and obsessives. Ticket stubs, tattoos, scars, stories. Fans are the performance.
FANFANZINEZINE is live improvised publication exploring and documenting the notion of the fan as focal point. Around any cultural phenomenon, the fan exists as the primary archivist: archivism is a performance. The physical ephemera of fandom exist as a document of that performance, and for Fan Riot we want to recreate both the document and the performance.
Inviting audience members to bring their own instances of fandom, either verbally or tangibly, FFZZ will take shape as an instant document charting those events. By creating a physical document within the same time as the Hail Hail Hail Party Hail performance event, FFZZ keeps the same constraints as its sister performance, while producing and distributing an archival piece that exemplifies both the night itself and the moments of fandom that led to its creation. Images, objects and histories will be collected to become part of FANFANZINEZINE. Everything will be documented and available to view at fanfanzinezine.tumblr.com
As a record of the performance, FANFANZINEZINE will be created, published and sold on October 21st as part of the Fan Riot event. Suggested donation of £4 split with Chisenhale Dance Space to fund further artists’ performance.
If you have any instance of fandom, no matter how small, we want you to share it with us.
