We are supporting the creation of many Zines to come, and believe that every city needs a place where one can go to produce a publication and read other peoples productions. We frequently travel with our huge collection of zines, setting up our Library in varies galleries. Often with a zine workshop attached.
So far we've been in Aarhus, Copenhagen, Vienna and Stockholm
For more info on hosting the library in your city or town, pls. get in contact.

During festugen we were asked to design and create 2 art installations. One for the cinema Øst for paradis to create a sense of a roof in their yard. And one for the one day jazz festival in Atlas to help make the space smaller and work as seating arrangements.
We design and facilitate zine factorys, where one can join in on live collective zine making. This concept works well for any kind of group, organization, community or business that are curious to dive into their minds to discover what they want to say on paper. We do this with or without themes. Strict regulations or no regulations.
These days the zine factory along with everything zine related is part of our sup-department Batteri

A zine is most commonly a small circulation publication of original or appropriated texts and images. More broadly, the term encompasses any self-published work of minority interest usually reproduced via photocopier. -Wikipedia 2011
At the start of Sideprojects we curated, designed and produced a monthly zine called "sideprojects zine". The idea with the zine was that we each month would pick a theme, invite whoever wanted to make something inspired by the theme, and put it all together into a zine. Each of the 4 editions were produced in an edition of 100 and spread throughout Aarhus.
