Brown Recluse Zine Distro Grand Opening!
Brown Recluse Zine Distro was created to support and center zines written predominantly by POC folks of all identities. This project was born out of passion for zines and frustration at the lack of representation and meaningful zine material for People of Color. I scoured through zine distros with a fine tooth comb and found that just like everywhere else in the dominant culture there was a serious lack of material written by POC folks in these distros. This is not because there is a lack of zines written by People of Color, because there are hundreds of self-published works written by People of Color. My personal zine collection is full of POC zines and zines that are of interest to us. 
 
So after many years of reading zines, writing zines and observing zine culture I decided to start a zine distro that centers our voices and presents our large contribution to zine and DIY culture. BRZD is dedicated to our struggles, our projects and our zines. Brown Recluse Zine Distro was born in the spirit of visibility and in the spirit of celebrating our cultures and inter-sectionality. BRZD exists to strengthen our ties and highlight out inter-sectional relateable experiences. BRZD is here to offer a place to locate POC zines without spending hours browsing the internet.

BLACK SALT : THE INITIATION
DONATE NOW!
We are five women of color artists, musicians, healers, educators, and visionaries. We are Bolivian, Filipino, Chumash, Navajo, Yaqui, Jamaican, Slovak, Swedish, Mexican, African, Basque and Pima. We each make work that is unique, yet share profound commonalities. While rooted in our past, we create the future. We formed this collective to create a circle of support for each other, because we find support for artists like ourselves so lacking. Between us, we have more than 40 years of experience of making art within our communities.
We feel our experiences have been largely undocumented which is why for our first large-scale project we have decided to make a collaborative film. Inspired by works such as Downtown 81, Born in Flames, and Space is the Place, our film will be part-documentary, part-narrative; a spiritual journey through the many worlds that we will create together.
We are going to shoot the film beginning in late August as we travel from Oakland to Santa Fe, with stops along the way. As we go, we will make performances and installations, music and rituals. We will be weaving our stories, our visions for the future, and our (re)discovery/connection with the land.

"Basically, I think y’all are doing awesome work and I am honored to be able to support the project in whatever way I can. - Sarah McCarry, Guillotine creator & POCZP fundraiser"

COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT: Much love and many thanks to Sarah McCarry, who is donating all proceeds from the Guillotine #4 special edition presale to the 2013 Race Riot! Tour fund. Woo! xo

Announcement from Sarah:

I cannot even TELL YOU in the LANGUAGE OF WORDS how excited I am to be publishing Mimi Thi Nguyen and Golnar Nikpour’s conversation on punk. No lie, friends, this chapbook is going to melt the fuck right off your face. You can preorder it now; it’ll ship in mid-June. Use the discount code PUNKSNOTDEAD for $2 off your order between now and May 31. All the proceeds from the special edition will benefit the POC Zine Project’s Race Riot! 2013 tour.

This collaboration is beautiful to us on multiple levels: Mimi was instrumental in making the first Race Riot! tour a success last year and will be joining us again this year. Golnar is an inspiration to POCZP and she performed at the first Race Riot! tour event in Brooklyn with her band In School.

MORE INFO

Guillotine is an ongoing series of handbound chapbooks with letterpress-printed covers, and each chapbook is a single essay.

“Punk is a moving target”: Punk is an unwieldy object of study—because of fictions that circulate as truth, absences in archives and the questionable subject of recovery, and the passage of “minor” details into fields of knowledge. A conversation about the politics of methodology, and historiography, of subculture. 32 pp., 4.5 x 6.5”. ***SHIPS IN JUNE 2013, 243 IN STOCK***

MIMI THI NGUYEN is an Associate Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies and Asian American Studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and the author of The Gift of Freedom. She has made zines since 1991, including Slander and the compilation zine Race Riot. Nguyen is a former Punk Planet columnist and a Maximum Rocknrollshitworker; she is also a frequent collaborator with Daniela Capistrano for the POC Zine Project.

GOLNAR NIKPOUR served as co-coordinator of Maximum Rocknrollbetween 2004 and 2007. She is also a founding editor of B|ta’arof, a magazine featuring art, literature, historiography, and cultural critique related to Iran and its diaspora. She was born in Tehran, Iran, and lives in New York City.

SUPPORT POC ZINE PROJECT

If everyone in our community gave $1, we would more than meet our fundraising goal for 2013. If you have it to spare, we appreciate your support. All funds go to our 2013 tour, the Legacy Series and the poverty zine series.
