The alternative press has always been a home for radical ideas, organizing efforts and crucial kowledge production. But in the 21st century, self-publishing and print take on new qualities and political tools for artists, writers, and activists. In this panel, zinesters, writers and illustrators will discuss the radical potentialities — and necessary pitfalls — of zines as political tools in the digital age.
