Weekend Herald - Canvas



Zines are a strange, somewhat inexplicab­le phenomenon that we will never quite understand but neverthele­ss these miniature handmade magazines can be fascinatin­g. Often packed with the most private thoughts of their creators, zines can teach you things you never thought you wanted or needed to know, they can give you insights into worlds you’re unfamiliar with and they can make you squirm with discomfort. Auckland Zinefest turns 10 this year, and the weekend-long event at Auckland Art Gallery will have more than 80 stallholde­rs — that’s a lot of zines.

Today and tomorrow, 11am-4pm. Auckland Art Gallery, cnr Kitchener St and Wellesley St, Auckland. Free entry.
