automatic zine is an experiment with forms of collective and participatory art publishing. it uses a simple process to generate printable zines without relying on other methods or software. publications are generated after reaching 8 pages, a standard figure in zines production, and then displayed in a gallery/library space for viewing or printing. the project plays an intermediary role as a virtual publisher and a collaborative space. it is part of ongoing experimentation in publishing and art projects associated with publishing as an artistic practice. inspired by the history and practices of participatory creation in art publishing. the project was conceptualized by me during the digital residency at goethe institute cairo in december 2020. the website was coded and developed by mohamed hawwari.
