In 2017, The Newsstand was selected to be exhibited in Being Modern: MoMA in Paris at the Fondation Louis Vuitton.

As part of this exhibition the zine vending machine was reactivated and a new limited-edition compendium was produced and given away to visitors.

Zine Time
was originally a vending machine which randomly distributed one of twenty different artist’s zines for $1 (or four quarters).

Each zine contained 16 pages and the artists were given carte blanche for both the content and design.

The machine was first installed within The Newsstand, a project by Lele Saveri, in Brooklyn’s Lorimer Street / Metropolitan Avenue subway station in 2013 which sold books from artists and independent publishers out of an underground newsstand which had been previously abandoned.

Between June 2013 and February 2014 it hosted over 90 events, book launches and exhibitions, and sold over a 1,000 different titles by more than 300 artists from around the world.
