Audio and Visual Arts
A German independant record label founded in 1994 by Stefan Alt (aka recording artist S.Alt), who serves as the art director. Visual arts from Ant-Zen are typically bleak but astonishing landscapes, or microscopic studies of what is often overlooked. Over the years, the Ant-Zen name has become synonymous with the rythmic noise and power noise movement within the industrial music scene. The name is derived from the phrase "Anti zensur," which serves as the modus operandi of activities as new and uncensored expressions. A fascination with insects, particularly ants, is shared among labelmates, who make references in artwork or samples in the music.
