The idea for the creation of an Internet zine, in the field of visual arts, 
is strongly urged by the desire of young people who
are involved in contemporary art, and other cultural events to find a
venue for the realizing of their concepts. Following our aims we are
trying to develop ZAYAC as Internet space for the release of critical
texts, concepts, projects and other studies connected with exhibiting
and cultural aspects of contemporary and electronic arts in Macedonia.
ZAYAC is the first and so far only zine in this medium in Macedonia and
in Southeast part of Europe.
The basic aim of ZAYAC is to unite people who want to actively take part in 
creating of the young contemporary art scene
and is strongly connected to  the use of new technologies. The concrete
results of the issuing of ZAYAC as an internet zine are related to the
entering of new technologies in contemporary art in Macedonia, as well
as to the presentation of a part of the domestic art activities to the
international audience and in providing new contacts of young people
with the institutions and persons who act in the same field all over the
world. The long-term aim of ZAYAC is to develop a greater interest among
the artists for new technologies and to create opportunities to work in
international framework, aiming to involve the Macedonian contemporary
art in the current European and international trends.
