Zine Review: The Subconscious Restaurant

The Subconscious Restaurant
Edited by Ron Hanson
44p, b&w, 8.5"x11"  $10
Room 5, Floor 9, No.420, Sec. 2, Nantun Road, Nantun District, Taichung City, Taiwan

The avant-garde art movement is alive and well and documented meticulously in this gorgeously printed zine. Subconscious Restaurant starts out with an article about Wang Fujui and his sound installations. Bruce Russell contributes insights into the history of New Zealand electronic music. An exquisitely drawn feature explores Wellington NZ transportation and road woes and the destruction of communities caused by airport overdevelopment. This is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg … there’s a lot of creativity packed into these 44 pages. The Subconscious Restaurant offers a feast of artistic endeavor.
