2018 ︎︎︎ PRESENT
 






Zineswap was started by Myself & Rob Peart 15 years ago! With a few breaks here and there, we have still managed to have some super fun times at a variety of zine events, done a bunch of workshops at places like Tate Britian & Modern. 

This year 2023 is going to be ‘Year of the Zine!’ we are going to get back on the swapping, get all of the archive documented online and push to do some more fun events.

Also watch this space as we want to also start publishing other peoples zines!

LONDON ZINE SYMPOSIUM - EAST LONDON 

The London Zine Symposium was a long-running annual zine festival in London, United Kingdom. The symposium was dedicated to zines, comix, art and radical culture. ZineSwap, filled a stall with zines from it’s early days archive and let zinsters at the symposium drop and swap if they so pleased! Here are some disposable camera snaps from 2010!





ZINE/DOT - ORANGE DOT - LONDON 

Little gallery tak over Orange Dot Galley which at the time was in West London....

“Since setting up Zineswap several years ago, Robert Peart and Gordon Armstrong have been offering a resource and opportunity for different artists and individuals to share their own zine creations, whilst themselves, slowly building a vast archive of contemporary Zine publishing. For the month of June the Orange Dot Gallery is proud to announce an exciting exhibition from zineswap, which brings you the rare opportunity to view their vast archive collection of contemporary zine publishing in a very special installation”
