Things That Matter

Catalog Number: 
Zine, Things That Matter
Date: 
December 2008
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
It seems that this zine came out of a 2 in the morning conversation between two friends, Jamie and Katie. They discuss the all-too-common trap that many activist communities fall into: an ironic reiteration of the very hierarchies they try to dismantle. The authors seek to validate all types of "activism" and challenge the very definition of activism itself.
