Somerset House
Strand London, WC2R 1LA London, United Kingdom
Learn what it takes to make a zine and create your own with a screen printed cover with OOMK Zine.

This workshop explores the growing mistrust of mainstream news by exploring and subverting formal newspaper conventions and using a cut and paste approach employing more DIY style zine formats to convey information.

In this workshop participants will be encouraged to interrogate ideas surrounding ‘the truth’.

Participants will be presented with a range of printed articles and statistics from different sources exploring the themes beauty and the environment. They will select one story and through a series of activities will be prompted to re-­communicate this knowledge using their own creativity and imagination.

OOMK Zine (Sofia Niazi, Rose Nordin and Heiba Lamara) has operated since 2013 as an artist collective specializing in print practices exploring intersections of art, activism and publishing. OOMK publishes a biannual zine that explores diasporic activism and the art and identities of women.

OOMK recently completed a residency investigating the future aesthetic, function and user culture of the 'library' at Open School East with Book Works, London resulting in the new publication 'The Library Was'. OOMK co-organises DIY Cultures Festival in East London with Other Asias and currently runs Rabbits Road Press, a community Risograph printing press in East London.
