Fosfor (zine distro)!

Many self-publishing comics creators still have very few opportunities to reach a market outside comics festivals. With Fosfor, we give these creators a platform to reach out to more readers. We want to be able to spread zine creators’ works and open up one of comics’ greatest cultures to more people!

Fosfor was started once upon a time by former CBK crew members Steve Nyberg and Christoffer Frostgård as Sweden’s first distro for comics zines. It was taken over by CBK and was reborn in June 2019 as part of Fanzineverkstaden and Hybriden in Malmö.

You’ll find it along with publications from CBK, Tusen Serier, Wormgod etc at the Hybriden webshop.

Want to sell your zines, prints or stickers via Fosfor? Go to the site for instructions…

Fanzineverkstaden exhibition & Fosfor distro

Fanzineverkstaden has been open for almost a year now, and we thought it was time to showcase some of the material that’s been produced so far.

On Wednesday June 5, 17-22, we open a permanent exhibition at Hybriden, where you can see screen prints, zines and more by some of the members at Fanzineverkstaden.

This will also be the official opening event for Fosfor, our zine distro that now exists at the Hybriden website and will now also be available in the physical shop/exhibition space. Come and have a look at around 150 different titles!

It’s also a chance to see the current Lore exhibition by CBK, which will stay up for a while longer.

There will be snacks and wine.
See you there!

Fanzineverkstaden is run by Tusen Serier in close cooperation with CBK, with support by Arvsfonden.

Malmö Gallerinatt is an annual event held last Saturday in September every year, when many of Malmö’s galleries and art institutions have a common evening opening between 18-24.

This year all of Mitt Möllan was turned into an eye-candy spectacle!
All of Mitt Möllan had about 4000-5000 visitors, and we counted over 1200 people at Hybriden.

It’s great to have people find CBK, HYBRIDEN and TUSEN SERIER so that we get a chance to show off all our great comic books, artworks, artists and meet new people!

Invocations and Incantations

Guest/group exhibition at Hybriden: Invocations and Incantations
with Markus Samnell, Joel Danielsson, and Louise Öhman.
Hybriden (Mitt Möllan, Bangatan 5, Malmö)
Opening event: Fri July 28, 17-22.
Also open: Sat July 29, 14-18

Demonology
Digital collage + performance

Markus Samnell, also active in industrial acts such as Feberdröm and Khmer Noir, shows parts of ongoing work called Demonology, dealing with demonic metaphors and hallucinatory states as steps towards understanding (or misunderstanding) our existence. The work is built around fragments – video, image, text, sound. During the evening he will also do a musical performance with his solo project Stygian Springs, a mix of industrial and apocalyptic restaurant music.

 

Nollmeridianen
Videokonst

Joel Danielsson & Louise Öhman is a duo who recently graduated in free art at the University of Bergen (Norway). They work with themes surrounding the phenomena of image, strata and spectrality.

1979, i trädgården till Schloss Bellevue, grävs 32 statyer upp ur marken. Kroppar gjorda av marmor, som uppfördes i början på 1900-talet, beställda av den tyska kejsaren Wilhelm II (1859-1941). Statyerna grävdes ner i Tyskland under efterkrigstiden, i ett försök att räddas undan från det projekt som kallas ’zero hour’, eller timme noll – en reduktion av imperialistiska symboler och en exorcism från den tyska nationella kroppen och dess förflutnas fantomer. Sedan återuppståndelsen av dessa skulpturer, som än en gång flyttade in mot historiens ljus, har de varit situerade i ett musealt limbo. Än en gång ställs vi inför frågan om dess vara och potentialitet i rörelsen över linjen.

Facebook-event

The exhibition is organised with support from Institutionen för Kunst vid Universitete in Bergen, Norway.
Parts of the exhibition are digital prints made at Tidskriftsverkstaden, Malmö.

I don’t want to dream – R’lyehsfest for CBA vol 36|37

I don’t want to dream: art exhibition by Spyros Verykios
& release party for CBA vol 36|37 by CBK

Opening: May 5, 17-22 @ Hybriden (Bangatan 5 / Claesgatan 8, Malmö)
The exhibition will remain until May 25 (Tue-Thu 14-18)

Facebook event

I don’t want to dream is a comic of 43 pages, entirely painted in oil, by Greek artist Spyros Verykios. It is a metaphysical horror story about how an experiment with mind-expanding drugs has unexpected consequences – or is it something else entirely? The borders between what is dream, reality and bedtime story are blurred sometimes.

In this very special exhibition, we will show a selection of the original paintings from this comic. There will also be some unrelated bonus material included, such as the originals from another of Verykios’ stories, published back in CBA vol 7.

cbavol36cvrLet’s plunge together into the pits of madness. Let’s watch the dissolution of reality, let’s dance with clear heads and see where it takes us. Let’s travel the river hiding in the desert sands until the wind rises and we reach the final collapse. Let’s look deep into the eye of the tiger. And see afterwards if we dare to dream.

The exhibition opening is also the release party (or as we like to say, R’lyehsfest) for the new CBA vol 36|37 (pre-order it here) where I don’t want to dream is included, along with three other stories, by Akab [IT], Elena Guidolin [IT] and Serena Schinaia [IT]. Cover by Radovan Popović [RS]. The theme for this volume is In the pits of madness.

Here are some samples from the exhibition (and you can find more from the book at our Instagram):

Also check out Spyros Verykios at Instagram and Behance.

The exhibition is organized with the support of Malmö Kulturstöd, in cooperation with ABF Malmö. CBA vol 36|37 was made possible with the help of our crowdfunders at Indiegogo.
