Weekly Binding Parties at Encyclopedia Destructica

Encyclopedia Destructica creates art-zines (magazines with book aesthetics) inspired by the need to explore and export contemporary arts/culture in a way that’s accessible and easy to engage in, providing a forum for a primordial dialogue between artists.
To produce each issue, Encyclopedia Destructica holds weekly binding parties, gatherings where artists, friends, & the interested general public come to the Destructica studios and work on the production of the zines. Created and distributed in a DIY fashion, Encyclopedia Destructica promotes this attitude as well as providing support and resources for local artists to create their own book/zine projects. Encyclopedia Destructica is interested in community and dialogue throughout the creative process with the artists and editors in the process of creating an issue, the artwork within the pages of an issue, artists and participants as they work on production in binding sessions, and the viewer engaging the issue and the artwork within.
Encyclopedia Destructica holds almost weekly binding parties on Wednesday evenings. Binding parties are open to the public, are are gatherings where we work on the production of Destructica's zines and books. Email to join our binding party email list.
