Zinko Tiček is a small zine reading room at the Pivka House of Culture that was born from the ongoing and longstanding personal archive of fanzines, graphic books and comics by leader of the project and visual artist Leon Zuodar, who will present it as part of the Zine Vitrine programme.
Leon Zuodar (1977) graduated in Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana in 2004. Together with Miha Perne, he established the Beli sladoled painting group and zine label of the same name, focusing on different, marginal and experimental drawings. So far, they have released 23 publications, mostly zines, a few compilations of drawings and exhibition catalogues in the form of zines. In 2011, they received the OHO Award for their work. On his own, Zuodar is active in the fields of drawing, prints and painting. He also co-organises an exhibition program and runs a graphic art studio. As of 2016, he is in charge of the Zinko Tiček reading room at the Pivka House of Culture.
