NYC FEMINIST ZINEFEST
Swing on by and get a taste of NYC’s creative and awesome feminist zine culture!
Featuring short talks and presentations by fabulous zinesters, there will be a wide selection of zines/artwork for sale all day.
In this digital age, we think zines are holding up just great.
These expressive little publications have a special place in our hearts: there’s just something about the immediacy and expressiveness of a printed booklet, smudged with printer’s ink or photocopy errors.
It’s like a small, pocket-sized emissary of ideas, one who will eagerly come with you on a long train or bus ride, and share its hidden tales.
Following a year marked by brutal sexual assaults by NYC police officers and foreign dignitaries alike, the idea of a feminist zinefest resonates strongly for us in 2012. We’d like to showcase the work of artists and zinesters who proudly identify as feminists, and whose politics are reflected in their work.
