Zineing with (F)eminist (H)ack (M)eetings @SPREAD Zinefest (at Sign Gallery at Groningen), with lots of scanning, printing, binding, patching, folding, annotating, re-reading, messing.
It was amazing to see such a rich zine collection made by the hosts of SPREAD from feminist, artist zine makers from far away.
Thanks all the zine contributors who send their feminist zines and participants of the workshop.
Check out the FemLib with links from the publications of the contributors in the wiki fhm.varia.zone :)

Of all the greyzones of our readwrite worldings, bibliographic self-defence constitutes a specially powerful one. Self-defence, resistance, counter-weighting and mutual support operations of immense technopolitical value keep taking place at what can be termed "peripheral literature areas" such as bibliographies, footnotes, indexes, acknowledgement pages, colophons, library metadata and side annotations, where trans*feminist, anticolonial, antiracist, queer, crip, antispeciest, antifa and atiageist solidarities take very tangible and specific forms.
The devices we surround ourselves with are an increasingly complex and extremely heterogeneous matter. In a short workshop we will investigate the materiality and inevitable politics of electronic components. We will take an interdisciplinary approach to dissect specific objects in terms of their material, socio-cultural and ecological dimension.
In this process we will dismantle and dissect components to their very building blocks, investigating components from the Electronica Depot.

About the wildfires here in Greece. It is frustrating and sad to read accounts of survivors pointing out that no firefighters were there to help. The state sent evacuation messages too early, in fear of being accused of inflicting deaths. They also didn't allow fire trucks to enter forest paths for the same reason. We had fires that lasted more than a week.
Another little generator project. This is a tool made for the art event Lesbiennale (https://lesbiennale.art), aimed at the organisation team so that they can create pictures for their social network accounts by playing with the automated layout of the tool. Then PNG files are generated and can be downloaded.
Print-making gets messy, stressful but also fun! We are sending new geeky stuff to spreadzine festival in Groningen NL. Exhibition at sign project space 17 - 26 September.
Your feminist zine to SPREAD Zinefest!
F(eminist)H(ack)M(eetings) invites you to send zines to the presentation library, “Zinedisplayer”, of the SPREAD Zinefestival until the 11th of September. In this year's SPREAD Zinefest, FHM will organise a workshop on zine making and invite zines from different networks to be displayed in the festival and join a feminist library that will be an inspiration reference for the workshop. We invite you to contribute with your zine(s) themed around feminism in relation to L.G.B.T.Q.I.A.+ issues, hacking, biohacking, technology, art, food, caring, networks, tools, infrastructures etc. The delivery costs and the price of the zine will be covered.

SPREAD Zinefest (http://www.spreadzinefest.nl/) is a festival focusing on self published art and prints, including a library, a zinemarket, workshops, lectures, petanque and network moments in a splendid setting!
FHM are a series of research meetings and workshops that are initiated by Varia (https://vvvvvvaria.org/) in Rotterdam. They explore the potentialities and imaginaries of feminist technological collectives. These gatherings aim to challenge who counts as a hacker, and what counts as hacking(...)
It's this time of the year...

Together with Santiago Pinyol and Luke Murphy we're organizing this year's edition of Relearn in and around the city.
Relearn is an intensive IRL three day collective learning experiment with as many teachers as participants from all backgrounds and disciplines to learn from-and-teach each other, beyond the traditional paradigms of education from an interest in free culture and practices of care.
This year's edition will take place in and focus on Rotterdam. We aim to explore the importance of self-organisation and the use of experimental tools to build alternative systems and economies within the urban fabric of Rotterdam.
Apply by the 30th of June! Find the full text of the open call here -> http://relearn.be/2021/
https://greentechfestival.com/ damn just found out about this today. Would be so nice to attend and livepost everything in the saltiest way. Disposable coffee pad manufacturer's CEO, Brian Adams, oil company representatives as speakers. Fantastic products such as Water 3.0, 'Urban gardening without a garden', 'following people to make cities greener', 'climate friendly advertising' and a strong showing from 5 luxury car brands and much more.
Read & Repair - The Automated Body feat. Katarina Jazbec & MELT
11:00-13:00 CEST (READ, in person)
14:00-16:00 CEST (REPAIR, online)
The text selection and our reading choreography in June was made by artist Katarina Jazbec. This Read session will be overflown with no bullshit tales on living and dying together on damaged earth. How are we to live in the ruins with the dead and the living? Arundhati Roy’s ghost vultures and Anjum, a Muslim Hijra, in her opening chapter of The Ministry of Utmost Happiness and The Camille Stories in the closing chapter of the Staying with the Trouble by Donna J. Haraway, speculative fabulations, will render us capable of response in disturbing times.
The Repair session of this theme is hosted by arts-design researchers MELT. For this repair session we will work with and around the project Rituals against Barriers by MELT which is inspired by the multiple practices of survival in the face of oppression which take the form of ritual practice. Rituals can invite a stepping away from whatever normativities and can allow entry into practices such as: Refusing to ignore a feeling, refusing to not listen to your body because doing so would make apparent the ableism of any space, refusing to speed up even if that is the normalised tempo.
