Description

Summary

These materials--some published by zine veterans, others by graffiti crews or anti-capitalist collectives--convey a strong wish to destabilize mainstream crisis narratives and engage Greece's current predicament through poetry, surrealist stories, queer theory, and a return to the fundamentals of anarchism. Beautifully designed and presented in unconventional forms, these zines of the Greek crisis, are unique publications, strategically marginal, and are not being acquired by other U.S. research libraries. This unique resource is possible to collect because visiting professor Dimitrios Antoniou has established relationships with the distributors of these materials in Greece.
