Exploring how there is a growing distrust for mainstream news, through exploring and subverting formal newspaper conventions and employing more DIY-style zine formats, artist Sofia Niazi invites you to create your own zine exploring fact and falsehood.
You will work with news stories and facts in order to explore and interrogate ideas surrounding ‘the truth’. You’ll choose one story from a range of printed articles and statistics exploring tabloid news, and be prompted to re-communicate this knowledge using your own creativity and imagination. The workshop will look at image and text, turning photos from articles into illustrations/collages and employing hand drawn typography or cutting and pasting text.
