About

Vagina Dentata Zine is a visual exploration of Science Fiction and Fashion’s relationship. The zine provides a space for women, LGBTQIA+, POC and non-binary creatives to design the futures they want to see, utilising “fictioning” as a political tool. Vagina Dentata Zine has been involved in exhibitions and events at the Tate Modern, Somerset House, V&A, The National Trust, BFI Southbank, Bow Arts, Oxford University and London College of Communication.  

"Exploring the intersections of science fiction and feminism whilst shining a spotlight on LGBTQIA+ and POC communities, the zine tackles weighty issues in nuanced and intelligent ways. Just two issues in, they’ve explored race and technology through an Afrofuturist lens; created a Harajuku-meets-sci-fi shoot discussing the British Visa and Immigration system, and produced wild interpretations of the appearance of alien life-forms. In short, Vagina Dentata Zine provides a cohesive collection of images and art pieces that celebrate all things sci-fi, and in doing so, reclaim it from the white, cis hands of Hollywood. Their Instagram is a must-follow for those intrigued by the genre – providing an intergalactic mood board of images and intelligent captions, contextualising sci-fi in the digital world" - Dazed Beauty  

"Out of this world...it’s the little touches that build this into a cohesive and unique publication" - It's Nice That

"It’s pretty much the most perfect title of any zine that dedicates itself to sci-fi and female fantasies...their Instagram feed is a must-see mood board of things they’ve cherry picked from around the interweb, feat. cyborgs, glitter and Sailor Moon" - Dazed Digital
