Fanzine Workshop in Sydney
Fanzine workshop with Ethan Minsker from Ethan H. Minsker on Vimeo.
Hand crafted magazines: We gave a short presentation on our fanzine and then taught the kids how to make their own from scratch with paper, scissors, and staplers. Fanzines can give the voiceless a powerful way to reach a larger audience. For myself, making fanzines was a way to build a community of artists who later became the Antagonist Movement.
Psycho Moto Zine is a periodical published from the late 1980s to the present, consisting mostly of short stories, reviews, and artwork. The zine was originally published in 1989 under the name East Coast Exchange. Copies were produced illicitly by friends who worked in copy shops during Minsker’s college years at School of Visual Arts in New York City and in Washington D.C. during Minsker’s summer breaks.
By 1994 Psycho Moto Zine (PMZ) had transformed into an arts and literary fanzine with reviews that covered underground art, fanzines, films, and music. This connection between different creative elements was the inspiration for what would later become the Antagonist Art Movement.
