Great finale of TKTZF aka Tai Kok Tsui Zine Fest 🥳 at @bedroom.tkt • Congratulations to every new and old friends exhibits in this magic room during this weekend • Best vibe before the year ends 👫👭👫👬👭👫
Reading the statement of TKTZF again reminds the beginning spirit of doing all these that in response to a contemporary situation in Hong Kong (中文下面) :
Notions of “Community”, “Locality”, and “Sustainability” have been cited ad-infinitum by various art spaces and fairs within our region. But how do we work towards a sense of community, as well as a practice of sustainability, during this nascent and pivotal period of Hong Kong’s art scene? How does one build a healthy, robust system within a complex and commercially oriented city?
TKT Zine Fest (TKTZF) springs from the heart of the HK DIY and print/zine art communities, counterpoint to the hyper commercialization of art in the city. Amidst the record-breaking auction sales, few have dared to engage more deeply with the local creatives who seek to make work together and forge connections outside the mainstream commercial art circuit.
TKTZF brings together different local independent entities to forge a transdisciplinary approach to art and culture. The fair does not aim to be the start of a “community”; a community cannot be borne overnight by merely organizing a fair. Rather, it is an experiment to see what happens when like-minded creatives gather on a lilac rooftop in TKT. Above all, it is celebrates “lowbrow” art made in bedrooms and basements, that doesn’t always hang on a wall, but circulates within friends and in broader circles.
TKT Zine Fest（TKTZF）源於香港DIY和印刷/小誌藝術社區的核心，與城市當中藝術界的超級商業化相對應。累創紀錄的拍賣銷售中，很少有人敢與當地創意人士進行更深入的尋求共同合作，並在主流商業藝術圈外建立聯繫。
