Ant-Zen Audio and Visual Arts is a German independent 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 rhythmic noise and power noise movement within the industrial music scene. The name is derived from the phrase "Anti-Zensur" (anti censorship) 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.

Ant-Zen's artists include Iszoloscope, Imminent, Asche, P.A.L, This Morn' Omina, Axiome, Synapscape, and Scott Sturgis, and are regularly featured at the Maschinenfest, C.O.M.A., and Infest alternative electronic music festivals.

Ant-Zen also releases material on its imprint label, Hymen Records.
