My fascination with zines began when introduced to artists Mike Kelley and Raymond Pettibon, both of whom explored their immature socio-political drives and desires in DIY zines, defined as a cheaply-made, cheaply-priced publication, often in black and white, but brimming with the personalities and passions of its creators. Encapsulated by the word ‘arrangements’, something that French philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari worked under when writing Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia (1972), this project is defined by collaboration and a retreat from the professional networks and institutional administrations that now define the social and professional mobility of the contemporary artist. The casual definitions of ‘arrangement’ help to introduce the project, pointing towards something formal, convivial, or a future conditioned by relationships that have yet to be defined.
