Print Matters: Zines as Archive of Record

  1. 1. The three most important reasons have to do with culture… - Preservation of the thinking and artifacts of a movement - Providing access to publications that reflect a different aspect of society, than the “norm” - Invaluable educational tool, teaching people that it is easy and rewarding to create media, not just consume it. - Jenna Freedman, Barnard College Zine Library
  2. 2. Record “Data or information that has been fixed on some medium; that has content, context, and structure; and that is used as an extension of human memory or to demonstrate accountability.”
  3. 3. Archive of Record pertaining to the collected “authority” on a particular topics, aggregated primary source, having demonstrated unique and managed control over content
  4. 4. As I have said elsewhere, the archive is a political and cultural meaning making machine for the passage of objects into what Michel Foucault calls knowledge’s field of control and power’s sphere of intervention, and for “minor” objects in particular, we know well how troublesome such a passage might be. – Mimi Thi Nguyen, POC Zine Project on Barnard Zine Library donation

  6. 6. What troubles me most is how to keep the real New Orleans that was unseen by the world alive through all of this. [T]he real New Orleans is hidden behind borders that hotels and tourists maps warned not to cross. It brings the fear in me, that these places, their people, and their stories will be brushed under the rug, forgotten forever with the city I know and love for its beauty, faults and eccentricities. (Jackson 2006, 39, “New Orleans... My Love”)
