Zines, Archiving, and Activism

From our friend and zine scholar Kiyoshi Murakami in Japan comes a new series of posts titled “Zines, Archiving, and Activism—the Horizons Opened up by Their Interlocking Developments” published in the webzine AMeeT (Art Meets Technology). Part 1 of 4, “Essential Issues in Collection, Preservation, and Disclosure,” was published on May 10th discussing the tension of DIY publications being collected and processed by formal institutions (such as university archives). If you don’t read Japanese, Kiyoshi suggests using the DeepL Translator for a translation. I’ll post the other parts here when they’re published!photo of zines neatly organized in labeled boxes on a shelf.
