“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
Who knows, maybe we will just "debate whether the collecting of zines by libraries and museums contradicts, even cancels out, the basically anti-establishment zine concept."... But don't bet on it. I'll be speaking about how my radical library heroes have taught me what's worth collecting (esp. Dodge and Danky, both of whose work I plan to talk about at length and to whom I owe another round of thank yous).
Jenna posted her slides for our talk tomorrow, "Zines: Institutional Collecting, Zine Makers, and the Fine Line of Art,"on Lower East Side Librarian. Click through for mine.
