MayDay Rooms' Events: Let a thousand A4 pages bloom: the newsletter from past and present!

Wednesday 10th Febuary 6-8pm, on Zoom

We are happy to be teaming up with the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest to bring you this event of Newsletter, past and present!

Newsletters, the stuff of steady curiosity, bureaucracy or just some local groups’ ephemera. MayDay Rooms archive is full of historic examples, and the recent 11th issue of the Journal of Aesthetics & Protest is primarily a compendium of contemporary, locally situated anti-fascist or avantgarde newsletters. Join us for a discussion led by the Journal of Aesthetics & Protest on autonomous and radical cultural work and sociality through the lens of the newsletter. We will be hearing contributions from Woodbine in Queens NYC, the Center for Enchantment from Albany NY, and Five Years (London) together with material presented from the MDR Archive. There will be a discussion led by Nick Thoburn, author of the Anti-book: On the Art and Politics of Radical Publishing.
