Not just Schwul, but Super Schwul!
With this catchy title, this is a great nod to our German neighbors and a long tradition to show German artists in the gallery. A group exhibition in which six artists from mainly the Schwule Szene of Berlin are showing their latest work:
Photography Daniel M. Schmude, Johnny Alexandre Abbate; Pen and ink drawings Musk Ming; Porcelain Hendrik Schink; Linocuts Hannes Steinert; Watercolors Rinaldo Hopf.
An exhibition that shows the freedom of artists. From Schwul fairy tales to Schwul polka dancing cowboys.
On view through 27th May 2018
LAZAABB is a new independent zine and art book event co-founded by Josh Paul Thomas and Robert Zin Stark. It will host over 50 zine and art book publishers and feature a vast variety of artists, zine makers, publishers, galleries, art book enthusiast, mystics, psychics and astrologers. Grassroots, underground, queer and ‘the unheard of’ welcomed.
Art, Words, and Magic Can All Be One
The idea is to shake up the idea of the “Book Fair” by adding an esoteric slant. There will be a select group of gifted psychics, card readers, and star gazers that will set up shop for the weekend.

LAZAABB feels like a fresh and worthy addition to the book fair scene, one that breathes new life into zine culture’s DIY roots. –
