We hope this email finds all well and swell this spring.


This year we are working on a new series of artist/ARI memory contributions in a digital/physical zine format.

Yet these stories of impact can be difficult to systemically track and use, this is a key focus of the memory work we perform at ARI Remix + EXTRA Zine.


You can easily access, discover and freely download the zines we are making for the ARI Zine anthology in the link below. Meanwhile here are few examples of where zine and zine making practice is being explored in the present. Enjoy! See you next time with the summer edition.


Best wishes,

ARI Remix [2011-2021]  is an archival art initiative in a living archives modality. It is presented as an expanded internet art work (Netart). As a collaborative passion project with over ten thousand hours of enthusiasm and volunteerism involved to make it happen and to stay preserved and “living” in the current online environment we need your help. Thanks to everyone who is kindly helping with this year’s crowdfunding campaign we are edging much closer now to the $7,500.00 goal for December 2022 to help offset the ongoing $300 monthly digital infrastructure, web hosting, software plug ins updates and IT fees. We are extremely grateful for your generosity, kindness and thoughtfulness so far, please help if you can and let your friends and colleagues know too…
