Abstract

A collection of contemporary zines created by Japanese women as part of an exhibit entitled "Feminine," which was curated by  Tokyo's Zine's Mate and presented at the 2011 New York Art Book Fair. This archive was once part of the personal collection of Matt Wobensmith, who created the zine Outpunk and is known for being an avid zine collector and zine show curator.

The zines in this collection represent a wide array of genres, often utilizing photography, art, writing, and ephemera to create unique art pieces that are produced in limited quantities and locally distributed. They primarily showcase the viewpoints of modern Asian and Asian-American underground artists with such noted topics as fashion, sexuality, gender, travel, social issues, education, and self-expression. Written in both Japanese and English, many of the zines exhibit a heavy array of western influence, referencing popular western folklore, cinema, and pop culture as well as adopting western-inspired punk and alternative fashion. There is a spirit of freedom and unrestrained creativity that pervades this selection, captured by many crude sketches, both black and white and colorful, think pieces, and abstract drawings, all which serve to produce an intriguing snapshot of the growing art and zine movement in Japan in the 21st century.
