Zine #2 TAKING UP SPACE
‘Taking Up Space’ is Efa Supertramp’s second zine exploring ‘space’. The first issue served as an alternative guide to the European squat and DIY scene based around a 6-week tour the folk-punk singer did in 2015; along with interviews with bands she played with and suggestions of great digs for vegan munch. This one still has some of Efa’s tour diaries, but this issue was also open to contributors and Efa weaves her ideas about ‘space’ between some great poetry, art and articles by a great bunch of people.
The zine is 80 pages long, printed on recycled paper on a risograph by the anarchist collective Footprinters in Leeds. The zine was designed by Efa including the eye-catching bright pink and blue cover, which should certainly make its way onto any zine-collector or DIY punk’s book shelf! From the subject of the submissions, the zine was divided into five sections – CITY SPACE focuses largely on public space and gentrification; (Y)OUR SPACE about amazing women and non-binary peepz taking up space to be heard in this world; BORDERS OF SPACE about the man-made division of space which causes so much suffering; HEAD SPACE about mental health and OCCUPY SPACE about squatting and autonomous spaces.
ZINE #1 – GIVE ME SPACE
56 page zine documenting Efa Supertramp’s 2015 European Tour – 33 Gigs, 6 Weeks, 8 Countries and over 4,383 Miles. The Zine includes vegan food suggestions for different cities, info about different squats/autonomous spaces, as well as travel stories from the trip. Printed on a risograph, cover is an awesome pink and blue, and inside is printed on recycled paper. Even if you don’t know Efa Supertramp’s music, this is a great zine for people travelling on the continent and hoping for a more underground/alternative tips for travel.
