Bremer Zine Festival 2022

OPEN CALL:
Bremer Zine Festival 2022

Kulturnetz e.V., the University of the Arts in Bremen, the Städtische Galerie Bremen and the Musiker Initiative Bremen are happy to invite DIY artists, graphic artists, comic artists and zine producers from Bremen and abroad to participate at the Bremen Zine Festival 2022. The three-day festival is open for graphic and art zines, DIY comics and literary zines as well as any other kind of text-based fanzine. We welcome individual artists but also groups and collectives as well as the inclined micro-editor. Of course, the broad field of fanzines, including music, film or political zines, is also more than welcome.

The festival-fair will take place in the Städtische Galerie Bremen (780 sqm) right next to the Werdersee in the Neustadt neighbourhood of Bremen. There the participants will present their zines, comics or other printed, drawn, folded or rolled up works to the public and the interested customers.

Depending on the corona situation there will also be a festival programme consisting of lectures, readings, workshops, performances and/or other events during the festival. This will take place at the Musiker Initiative Bremen which is located in the same building.

  • Applicants have to register by June 15, 2022, via the form on our website:

  • Only fully vaccinated or cured individuals are allowed to take care of the table.
