People's Square No.1 Changdian Village, 人民廣埸 No.1長店村
'People's Square is a zine series created for all the wandering tumbleweeds and curious cats who have found themselves lost in the dusty rubble of Chinese demolition and were thirsty to know more. Comprising photography, ethnography and art, it is a snapshot of the transient moments that make up China's rapacious urban development and a dive into the dumps of land expropriation. Issue No.1 is about Changdian Village, an urban village on the edges of Beijing where residents are resisting demolition.'—excerpt from Sponge Gourd Collective website.

AAA Library collects zines made by artists and art spaces, and also zines about recent art from Asia. Zines are not only a medium for artistic expression, but a space for unfiltered voices, with creators retaining complete control over the content, format, means of production, and distribution of their zines. The selection of zines on this page covers a wide range of topics—sociopolitical movements, activism, community, identity, gender, self-publishing, and more—showcasing diverse interests and contemporary concerns from an artistic perspective.
