QRL at Tai Kok Tsui Zine Fest, Bedroom

QRL at Tai Kok Tsui Zine Fest, Bedroom, December 6, 2018. TKT Zine Fest (TKTZF) springs from the heart of Hong Kong’s DIY and print/zine art communities, as a reaction to the hyper commercialisation of art in the city. In the midst of the high-speed art industry, nobody has bothered to look underneath the glossy surface, where groups of local creatives have been forming, each member doing their respective part by laying the groundworks for a much larger network of makers/presses/designers/artists.
