Description

Paper Cuts is an exploration of the contemporary world of zines and DIY publishing. Through a series of Podcasts and live events, Paper Cuts features writers, performers, and artists who have shared their work in print, on paper, and in small editions.

Zines are truly dynamic publications that have built and supported engaged communities around ideals, experiences, genres, music, politics, poetry…anything that can be printed, shared, and/or mailed. Listen to voices that would normally live in your hands and demand your eyeballs. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/paper-cuts/support

Guest: Jan VossHost:  Christopher KardambikisRecorded on November 22nd, 2018 at Boekie Woekie in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Boekie Woekie, books by artists, began paying rent for a tiny space in downtown Amsterdam on January 1st, 1986. It was then seen by its 6 founders (artists from 3 countries living in Amsterdam) as a shop for their own publications. After the first 5 years and some reshuffling of the group and with 3 of the founders left, Boekie Woekie began its second phase in a quite much bigger shop space around the corner and with a renewed concept resulting from the gained experience: the new shop opened for publications by others. There are now about 7000 titles - almost exclusively self published or small press books. Those who run it – Henriëtte van Egten (Dutch), Rúna Thorkelsdóttir (Icelandic) and Jan Voss (German) have continued their personal artists’ careers and since years count the shop itself as a sculpture in progress they work on concertedly. A small gallery space has belonged to Boekie Woekie from the beginning. There never came a stop to very small scale publishing (3 or 4 titles a year) which has lead to the yearly participation in one or two book fairs (Frankfurt, London, New York). The entirely self financing enterprise is Europe’s, if not the world’s, venue for artists’ books the longest in existence which carries books regardless to their author's fame.Visit Boekie Woekie on the web.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/paper-cuts/support
