香蕉鱼书店受邀请参加了2012年4月初至6月底的Zine’s Mate临时书店展览。这是由Zine’s Mate (东京艺术书展主办方)发起的为期三个月的主题艺术书售卖和展示活动，每三个月主办方都将更换主题展示给读者。本期的主题则为： “ASIAN ZINES” （亚洲Zines）大集合。
我们选了在中国最具代表的独立出版社和个人艺术家作品制作人的书籍寄往东京参展，他们分别是：香蕉鱼出版社(A Perfect Book)，假杂志 社(Jia Press)，OFPIX，JV LAB，早安日光 (Good Morning Light)，汪梦阳，杜扬等。
ZINE’S MATE SHOP is back!
ZINE’S MATE SHOP opened in VACANT as a pop-up shop dedicated to Zines and artists’ publications. All the titles were renewed every three months in order to present the newest titles by zinemakers. Now in its fourth year we are enthusiastic about finding new zines. ZINE’S MATE SHOP 2012 will have a theme for each term to make the shop more specific and exciting.
For the April-June term we have gathered zines and magazines from Asian countries other than Japan. Even though the basic formatting is the same, as the culture differs the aesthetics changes drastically among the countries. Seoul, Shanghai, Taipei, Taichung, Singapore… We collaborated with six shops and publishers to gather amazing new zines that are rarely seen in Japan.
ZINE’S MATE SHOP 2012 “ASIAN ZINES”
Dates: 2012.4.7(Sat) – 6.30(Sat)
