Zines are often devoted to a specific topic and shed light on it from a creative, personal or political point of view. At the same time, zines are often used to educate readers about a specific topic. Especially different subcultures, marginalized groups within society, but also individuals, zines served as a medium as a mouthpiece to address important issues and to present their view of things from a personal point of view. However, zines have explicitly no scientific claim.
Significance of zines for the feminist movement Although zines serve as a central medium of exchange in various subcultures and are particularly known as fanzines for certain musicians, zines were and are particularly important for feminist, queer and homosexual movements. In addition to the informational purpose, they also primarily served the exchange about and the definition of one's own identity. In the 1990s they were especially prevalent in the Riot-Grrrl movement. Many young women * created their own zines that they exchanged with one another. In the zines, they addressed their own interests, goals, wishes, hopes and struggles: the zines thus had an explicitly political and empowering claim. Design of zines
There are no limits to the imagination when it comes to the design and so zines are characterized in their external appearance by the fact that the authors and designers deal very creatively with the topic of their zine in a wide variety of ways and the design forms support each other deal with the topic. In addition to collages, pictures, drawings and comics, there are also graphics and diagrams that support theses raised in texts.

The exhibit was created in the 1990s: the AStA's autonomous women's and lesbian department created a collection of cassettes and mixtapes at that time. There is a wide mix of different music styles on the cassettes. Funk, soul, grunge, disco sound: (almost) everything was heard and danced to. ? Please do not steal any cassettes !? ? was the request, which unfortunately was hardly followed: all the cash registers on the left are empty. The music mix was just too good! In the style of the 1990s, the cassette box was decorated with pictures and inscriptions and filled with music in order to fill the rooms of university and social life, parties and meetings with their own sound worlds. Students have always fought for their own, autonomous spaces. One possibility to design and fill these rooms is here in the showcase. At the adjacent listening station, you can also listen to a few selected songs.
