Marie Lovrod, from the University of Saskatchewan is bringing her Representation, Embodiment and the City women's studies students to the Barnard Zine Library for some zine handling!
On June 25th, join MOCA and the A/P/A Institute at NYU for a conversation about the power of social media and other technologies to create platforms for alternative aesthetics and challenge inequitable structures of production. The event features zinester and author Mimi Thi Nguyen with other highly regarded activists.
