Zines have a long history and have notably been a tool to voice disenfranchised perspectives. Zine-making and zine-consumption was a significant format for artists and activists to share info, find and identify subcultures before the internet was widely available. This contemporary collection will be on display through January 2016 with workshops to be announced.
