Live Event: .Gif us Zines by OOMK

A workshop transforming cut-and-paste zines into digital animations.

During the Offprint 2016 publishing fair at Tate Modern (Britain), Self Publish, Be Happy presented a programme of events exploring the blurring of boundaries between on/offline existence and how this affects the distribution of photographs. London-based feminist collective One of My Kind (OOMK) ran this workshop reflecting upon the journey an image takes when it’s shared online and placed in new contexts: participants handmade cut-and-paste zines from photocopied images and words, and these were scanned at the .gif-making station and exported as looping, three-framed animations that played on surrounding screens.

OOMK was founded by Sofia Niazi, Rose Nordin and Heiba Lamara and celebrates the imagination, creativity and spirituality of women through a biannual publication and regular creative events. While they welcome contributions from women of diverse ethnic and spiritual backgrounds, they are especially keen to be inclusive of Muslim women.
