At the confluence of art and activism, this workshop looks to cast a critical gaze on the representation of bodies, sexuality and gender in a clear confrontation with restrictions imposed by society, laws and religions.  

Over the course of three three-hour sessions in the company of illustrator and activist Zainab Fasiki, participants will collectively produce a fanzine, exploring different drawing and lettering techniques and their use in combination with text and the possibilities afforded by self-publishing. The activity also makes space for social concerns and protests against sexism and homophobia from a feminist perspective and through artistic practice.   

Zainab Fasiki (Fez, 1994) is a feminist draughtswoman and illustrator whose first published comic Omor. Only between us (2017) explores the difficulties facing women living in Morocco. In 2019, she put together Hshouma (Taboo), a website and comic on taboos in Moroccan society with a significant social and media impact in her country.
