ARTZINES #12, Provo Special

Experimental Jetset

Regular price €16,00

“This twelfth and last issue of ARTZINES is the printed version an online archive made by Amsterdam-based graphic design studio Experimental Jetset (consisting of Marieke Stolk, Erwin Brinkers and Danny van den Dungen) on the subject of the Provo movement (and its post-Provo offshoots). Within this research, the main subject is the relationship between Provo, the city, and the printing press.

The publications of the Provo movement that are featured here are not zines (even if they were self-published), and they are not made by artists or to be works of art. So why is the last issue of ARTZINES about them? The publications featured here are revolutionary, and can be considered as proto-zines in the sense that they were zines before zines, or publications that have all the characteristics of zines, but are not necessarily considered as such by the people who made them.

They also have a very strong anarchist agenda, that places them as one of the main inspiration of the punk zines DIY ethos.”

An illustrated zine tracing the history of the Provo movement and its publications, stapled, 25 x 20 cm, 36 not numbered pages, ed/200, Paris 2018
