The Cold War in Australia, and the anarchic world of zines, on The Conversation Hour

Our artists' book, A Deck of Salvaged Relatives, will be exhibited as part of Self-made: Zines and Artist Books in the Blue Rotunda, Cowen Gallery at the State Library Victoria, from the 11th of August through until the 12th of November, 2017. And on Thursday, Louise was on the radio with Monica Syrette talking about zines and artists' books.

Listen to The Cold War in Australia, and the anarchic world of zines, on The Conversation Hour with Jon Faine on ABC Radio Melbourne.

Jon Faine's co-host is Emily Sexton, who is the Head of Programming at the Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas. The Wheeler Centre, Melbourne Festival, and The City of Melbourne have joined forces to present The Festival of Questions at the Melbourne Town Hall on Sunday 15th October, 2017.

Their first guests, Mark Aarons and John Grenville, have collaborated on the new book The Show: Another Side of Santamaria's Movement (Scribe). Mark Aarons is a journalist and author, who was once a member of the Communist Party of Australia. He's a former ABC Radio National reporter, was the founding EP of Background Briefing, and went on to work as an advisor to NSW Premier Bob Carr. Mark's books include The Family File and War Criminals Welcome. John Grenville is an industrial advocate, who was once a member of the National Civic Council (The Movement). He's a former Federal Secretary of the Federated Clerks Union, and was Assistant Secretary of the Victorian Trades Hall Council.

Then they are joined by Monica Syrette and Louise Jennison. Monica is a curator at the State Library of Victoria, and has put together the show Self-made: Zines and Artist Books which features work by Louise. Louise works with Gracia Haby as Gracia & Louise. The exhibition Self-made: zines and artist books is on at the State Library Victoria from 11th August to 12th November, 2017, and will then tour to the Mildura Arts Centre, Murray Bridge Regional Gallery, New England Regional Art Museum, Tweed Regional Gallery, Toowoomba Regional Gallery, and Latrobe Regional Gallery through 2018 and 2019.

Duration: 1hr
Broadcast: Thursday 27th July, 2017, 11:00am
