Thank you for a great 5th Zinefest Berlin!


img_5633webWe can’t believe that it’s over! (And yes, it took us more than a month to recover ;)) Thanks to everyone who made it possible: the over 60 tables-holders, all the involved workshop-holders, the volunteers that helped running the space, the bar, the info-table, our big craft area and cleaning up after the hundreds of visitors left on Sunday night. THANK YOU!

FEEDBACK  |  We yearn for feedback: What did you like? What do you wish to be different the next time? Do you maybe want to get involved and help planning the next Zinefest Berlin? Contact us at

We had an open zine reading with some music on Sturday. Thanks to all the participants. How did you like it?img_5598web

Thanks to ReKult from Amsterdam for this welcoming and inspiring Zine Forest, it was great!


ZINE CURTAIN | We tried a different way to have an open table this year so people without their own table can sell their zines as well. How did you like it?img_5643web

Some of you left their zines and envelopes at the zinefest. We took them with us. If you wish to get them and do remember the number on your envelope contact us at We will keep all of them till the end of January ’16 and then share them with the world and put them on a free-zines-table at a cool zine event soon. The leftover money will go to the zinefest budget for the next event.

All pictures were taken from Echo, who wrote a nice blog post where you can get some more impressions from Zinefest Berlin 2015!

Rekult’s Zine Forest

We have invited the folks from ReKult to create a zine forest at this years zinefest!

“Stichting Rekult is a collective of young cultural managers and active citizens. We are an open platform dedicated to developing artistic and cultural projects. One of our focuses is the subculture of zine-making, also known as independent or Do-It-Yourself publishing.
About 100 collected zines are exhibited in the Zine Forest exhibition.
Every year ReKult receives zines from all over the globe.
With the zine forest we travel around Europe trying to showcase as many zines as possible giving visibility to ephemeral stories and adventures.
If you want your zine to be part of the next zine forest, please hand it over to the organizers!

Come and lose yourself among a thick forest of selected zines and stories from all over the world. Get inspired by this journey through narratives and DIY techniques and if you wanna know more check us out here:

Have an amaZINE day!”
