Shape & Situate: Posters Of Inspirational European Women

Issue #4



Shape & Situate is a zine of posters made by artists and DIY creative folk from within Europe, each poster highlighting the (often hidden) history and lives of radical inspirational women and collectives from Europe, as a way of connecting us with the past and the present through a dynamic cultural (re-)articulation of these women’s lives.

The zine aims to activate feminist cultural memory, to inspire…

Colouring Outside The Lines

Colouring Outside The Lines is a zine featuring interviews with contemporary female artists. It's edited by me, Melanie. I'm also working on the zine 'Shape & Situate: Posters Of Inspirational European Women'. http://cotlzine.blogspot.com/ http://remember-who-u-are.blogspot.com/

 

"Here were girls encouraging each other, directly and indirectly, to put their ideas into the world."

 

Colouring Outside The Lines is a zine featuring interviews with contemporary female artists; illuminating various corners of current female artistic and creative activity.

"We discover that behind the hysteria of male expertise lies the magic world of our unmade art"

"It becomes hard to make a clear division between art, politics and everyday living: the question 'what for' is answered in the activity"

ALL THE GIRLS ARE SITTING ON A PILE OF GOLD

>>NEW!!

 

*ISSUE 6* (Dec 2012)

Colouring Outside The Lines is a zine full of conversations with contemporary female artists.
I started this zine project back in 2005 as a way to communicate with contemporary female artists whose work I was excited by and wanted to celebrate, and also to provide a way to illuminate various corners of current female artistic and creative activity. Activity that’s not exactly in the mainstream. I’m continuing it here, in 2012, as there’s still a great deal to be said, and women to interview.
I’m interested in communicating with people, less to interview them about how or what they make, but more to ask big questions about the ‘Whys’ of their creativity, and the ‘What Fors’? This is hugely linked to individual’s lives, experiences, and politics. That to me is the interesting bit. And as such, the questions in this zine, and the conversations that have grown around them, are more about individual’s processes than of their actual production. This has led to this issue probing areas such as: confidence, accessing creativity, ‘community’, representation, art-as-activism, spreading and passing on 'good vibes', encouragement, getting stuff done, accessibility of art, working together, working outside of convention, feeling 'good enough', juggling life to make room for creativity, motivation, artistic potentials, and beyond.

 

Interviewees include:

Lauren Denitzio (USA),
Fly (USA),
Megan Kelso (USA),
Chandler O'Leary and Jessica Spring (USA),
Allyson Mitchell (Canada),
Caroline Paquita (USA),
Summer Pierre (USA),
Lindsay Starbuck (UK), and
Anke Weckmann (UK).

Cover artwork by: Amy Ng.

Each copy of Colouring Outside The Lines #6 comes with a limited edition bookmark designed and letterpress printed by Jessica Spring at Springtide Press (USA)
