A group of zine makers and distributors from around the country has announced it will boycott the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Zine Fair next weekend, and hold its alternative event at Central Park.
The Other Worlds Zine Fair includes over 65 zine makers and distributors. In explanation, the Fair announced: “The MCA is sponsored by Transfield, a corporation that operates service contracts in the detention centres on Manus Island and Nauru. Over 65 zine makers and distributors from Australia have decided to boycott the MCA Zine Fair in 2014 and to provide an alternative event on the same day.”
The Other Worlds Zine Fair takes place from 11am on Sunday May 25 at the Central Park Retail building in Chippendale.
