ANTI Festival releases an annual publication, ANTIZINE - both as a printed and online version. ANTIZINE gives voice to people who have been creating the festival; curators, producers as well as artists, partners and participants are given columns to express their thoughts about the upcoming festival and its themes. It's also a festival catalogue!
ANTIZINE vol. 9 / 2021 (Part 1) presents the 2021 programme of ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival, including the Shortlist LIVE! Programme; performances by artists shortlisted for ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art 2021. Part 2 celebrates the 20th anniversary of ANTI Festival through a series of mini essays by our friends - artists, partners and audience members. The writers present diverse perspectives on the 20-year-old festival.
ANTIZINE vol. 8 / 2020 covers the programme of ANTI - Contemporary Art Festival taking place between 27th October and 1st November 2020, and offers insightful perspectives to the festival theme of food. It also celebrates the Shortlist LIVE! Programme; the performances by artists shortlisted for ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art 2020.
ANTIZINE vol. 7 / 2019 covers themes and programme of ANTI - Contemporary Art Festival taking place between 10th and 15th September 2019. It also highlights the Shortlist LIVE! programme; the artworks by artists shortlisted for ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art 2019.
As ANTI 2018 is inspired by ideas of play, playfulness, games and gaming, ANTIZINE vol. 6 / 2018 is responding to the same themes. We wanted to find a way to not only talk about games but talk about games through a game. Yet, ANTI Festival’s programme offers much more diverse perspectives to games, it was both the festival themes and the idea of co-creation that lead us as we decided to use a video game as a tool of text creation. This year, we wanted the zine to BE a discussion.
Visit ANTI Festival 25.-30.9.2018 and Kuopio to pick up the printed version!
ANTIZINE vol. 5 / 2017 is not a typical festival catalogue, we go deeper underground - or shall we say, underwater!
ANTIZINE vol. 4 / 2016 was also the festival catalogue of Winter ANTI Festival!
