Despacio’s newest Library in Residence brings to life the ephemeral being of fanzines. Once printed and distributed they often disappear in personal collections or vanish quickly from sight. So are the fanzines of Cornucopia Zine, which will be accessible once again and present the visual dialogues with numerous artists in form of monographic fanzines.
Despacio collaborates with Printed Matter, Inc. (New York) to revive an almost lost medium. A few decades ago the cassette tape was the most convenient way to record sound material, yet with the fast advancing digital world it is at the verge of being completely forgotten. Nevertheless, artists have continuously used this format to further expand their forms of expression. Listen to the sound of a diary, bodies, an unstable table, singing sand, and of a disassembled cassette in our newest Library in Residence.
