Richard Cubesville and Stevphen Shukaitis will be sharing their experiences of, motivations for, and perspectives on DIY and Anarchist Publishing. Both these presenters are actively engaged in forms of publishing that differ markedly from the industry norm – but they differ from one another too. This presentation and discussion of their approaches will illuminate the political significance of alternative publishing, against the backdrop of a rapidly changing publishing world. There will also be a mini-exhibit of zines before and after the session.
- Richard Cubesville is a journalist, and is the force behind One Way Ticket To Cubesville zine, a vehemently DIY slice of anarcho-absurdism in existence since 1987.
- Stevphen Shukaitis is an academic at the University of Essex and is the coordinator of Minor Compositionspublishing project, which bills itself as a series of interventions and provocations drawing from autonomous politics, avant-garde aesthetics, and the revolutions of everyday life.
