blisterZine is a self-publishing and publishing project (since 2009) by NASTYNASTY©, with the purpose to promote the artist’s book as an art object, using the space of a book in an open and intimate way at the same time.
Emiliano Biondelli and Valentina Venturi make up NASTYNASTY©, a group of artists founded in 2008. The group strives to investigate the impact of photography on our culture and the power it has to condition our perception of the world and our criteria of authenticity through various media.
