Keen Zine #10 (Birth & Decay)

Keen Zine #10 (Birth & Decay)

The Birth & Decay issue is the last in a series of Keen Zines that was initiated by Djuna (Keen) Michielsen at the age of 18. Over the years a total of ten zines was published. With this final issue Djuna Keen decided to ‘close the circle’. Keen Zine #10 is ‘an ode to life and an homage to all the contributors of the previous issues’, explains Djuna Keen in her introduction. The hand bound issue contains 48 xeroxed and colour xeroxed pages of artworks and texts and comes with a 1h:18 audio CD of music by related artists’ bands, one track of which is by Djuna Keen’s own band The Joyous Cosmology. Contributors to the zine include Ludo Mich, Wataru Kasahara, Karen Constance, Djuna Keen, Laetitia Lemaire and John Godbert. The cover of the zine was designed by Djuna Keen and silkscreened on wallpaper. The magazine was published in October 2015 in a limited edition of 100 numbered copies. → order now
