〒150-0002 東京都渋谷区渋谷 1-17-1 美竹野村ビル2F (Map)

10月13日(土)、14日(日)の2日間、Mount Zine, Zine Picnic, Booklet Library によって集められた大量の zine を一望できるイベント「SUNDAY BOOKS」を開催します。Zine というフィールドで異なった活動を続ける3団体がはじめてクロスオーバーする稀な機会です。皆様のご来場をお待ちしております。

13日(土)に今回のイベントを記念したオープニング・パーティーを開催します。セルフ・パブリッシャー、コレクターの方、ご興味をお持ちの方、どなたでもご来場頂けますので、是非ご参加下さい。*この日は、エントランスで1ドリンク(¥500、Beer +100)のご注文を頂きます。ご了承下さい。14日は無料です。

オープニングでは、エントランスフィーがあるので、Booklet がおまけを作ってお待ちしております。お楽しみに!

SUNDAY BOOKS is an event that gathers zines selected by three (zine-related) organizations that have been separately active in Tokyo: Mount Zine, Zine Picnic, and Booklet Library. It is the first collaborative exhibition between the three.

There will be an opening party for the event on the 13th. Sunday Issue requests a ¥500 cover (+100 for a beer); in lieu of the fee, we'll prepare some (FREE) party favors in booklet format.


Mount Zine is a distributor of small-press publications by Japanese authors based in Tokyo, Japan.

Zine Picnic (just that! trees, sunshine, grass, biru, chu-hi, onigiri v. zines) was founded by Kohei Oyama. He publishes and distributes the work of young photographers as parapera.

Booklet Library is the website you're surfing. Booklet's selection for Sunday Books will address recent repeaters.

Ryuto Miyake, the organizer of the event, works at Sunday Issue. He likes to draw--birds, specifically.

18:00~20:00; Shibaura House 1F (Map)

"Happy Hour" /「ハッピーアワー」

夕暮れの仕事や勉学の後、すぐに帰路につくのではなく、公園のような場所に立ち止まり、ビールかソフトドリンクを片手に、いつもは聞かないような話に耳を傾け、となりの人と挨拶を交わす。そんな余裕をいかがですか?「ハッピーアワー」は、月に一度、BOOKLET LIBRARYがゲストをお招きし、SHIBAURA HOUSEとともに、いつもとは少々異なる夕暮れの時間をつくり、これからの社会や文化の在り方を、皆様と一緒に考え、共有する時間です。このイベントは、どなたでも無料でご参加頂けます。お飲みものは、SHIBAURA HOUSE よりお求め頂けます。どうぞお気軽にお立ち寄り下さい。

No.1; 2012年5月15日


SHに常設展示しているBOOKLET LIBRARYについて、スタッフがその活動目的と経緯、ブックレットとはそもそも何かについて、お話致します。 また、今月寄贈頂いたブックレットについて、その解説も致します。


「文化生産:Cultural Production」という言葉は、学問的には使われてきましたが、まだ一般に使われる言葉ではありません。

DJ: Clemens Büttner (日本古典建築音響研究者)

Join us for Happy Hour!

H ☺ U R will be held once a month at Shibaura House to facilitate public discussion on cultural production. You're free to supply your thoughts, brainwaves, and words to further the discussion. Booklet Library staffer Yu Morishita will be the talking head for the first of the series. Contact us if you'd like to be the next! The event is free, beers and drinks will be served. The talk will be held in Japanese.*

No.1, May 15th, 2012

Part 1 (18:15~18:35) - "Welcome to Booklet Library"
Short talk-off on the intent of Booklet Library and the culture, visual and not, surrounding booklets with impromptu reviews of some of the newest contributions to Booklet Library.

Part 2 (18:40~19:00)- "Cultural Production?"
What is cultural production? What form does it assume in Japan?
Despite its mention in academia, why does it remain ignored in the public sphere?
What is culture that is productive? Whose value system is it anyway?
What is cultural production as a thread toward social innovation?

Beats by / DJ: Clemens Büttner (Researcher on Acoustics of Classical Architecture)

* Find Yu Morishita after to talk for a re-cap in English!

See Yu / See you!

RECAP (via Dan Abbe):

「ビギナー向けのクラスでは、現在完了形について話しました。皆さんには一つの行動を計画している時、実行している時、そして終了した時の3つの写真を持参して頂きました。中級クラスでは、ドキュメンタリー的な写真の伝統に対し挑戦をしているスイスの写真家、Taiyo Onorato と Nico Krebs の作品について話し合いました。Onorato と Krebs は写真における真実ということに関して疑問を抱いていますが、皆さんにはこの点に関して、自身の作品のことを考慮しながら、各自の考えを述べて頂きました。」

"In the beginner's class, we talked about the present perfect tense. Students brought in three photos, showing a single action in the stages of planning, doing and completion. In the intermediate class, we discussed the work of Swiss photographers Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs, whose work challenges the tradition of documentary photography. Onorato and Krebs are skeptical about the value of truth in photography, and students reacted to this position, taking their own work into account."

「Megawords は自主出版された写真雑誌とそれに伴うインスタレーション、及びパブリックイベントを通した実験的なメディアプロジェクトです。私達は商業がもたらすノイズや競争本位のノベルティーから解放された意思の在り方を、私たちの身の回りとそこで起きる体験の記録を通して示すことにより、コミュニティーとの間にオープンで活発なダイアローグを作っていくという、シンプルな目的を持ち活動しています。」

Booklet Library はそのコレクションを介した SHIBAURA HOUSE における公共プログラムです。展示に関するアイデアや展示の為のサポートについてご連絡下さい。


We're pleased to announce Megaword Magazine's Issue 17 Release while they're in Tokyo. Stop by to meet them (Anthony and Dan) on the 25th and obtain a copy of their newest issue, which will be available free of charge. See about something different!

"Megawords is an experimental media project that takes the form of an independently published photography magazine and related installation projects and public events. Through our work we create an ongoing narrative that examines daily life in cities through the documentation of our surroundings and experience, with a voice free from commercialization and competing novelties."

Booklet Library is public programming for Shibaura House while the collection is there -- get in contact with us with exhibition ideas or for exhibition support.

16メートルほどの新しい本棚に、もっとも最近 Library に寄贈いただいた Zine と小規模出版から順に展示致します。 Friends of the Booklet Library に賛同いただき、私達のサポートをしてくださっている作者と出版社のタイトルを購入して頂くこともできます。 

Andres Monzon、 Yuta Nakajima、 Jesen Tanadi (with Tom Ngo、Catrina Stewart、Olalekan Jeyifous、Perry Kulper)、 そして Almin Prsic による私たち自身の新しい出版タイトルも発表いたします。


東京において、いつもとは少々異なる視覚的な表現をお見せしている Booklet Library をよりパブリックにリソースとしてオープンできることを、大変喜ばしく思っております。18日は是非ご参加下さい。もし小規模のタイトルを出版、制作なさっていましたら、18日に是非寄贈いただき、長い棚の一部にご参加頂ければと思います。

Shibaura House の伊東様、横川様には特別感謝いたします!
