In our new season of Paper Cuts, MEGALOPOLIS, host Christopher Kardambikis is moving along the Atlantic Seaboard to explore artist publications in relation to place. And space. Spaces that include Northern Virginia, DC, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. The zine and DIY worlds inhabiting the I-95 corridor are dense and vibrant and moving at speed. MEGALOPOLIS hopes to serve as an introduction to just a few of the people who are doing the work on the ground to sustain various creative communities.
Zines are truly dynamic publications that have built and supported engaged communities around ideals, experiences, genres, music, politics, poetry…anything that can be printed, shared, and/or mailed. The series will act as a cross section of this varied landscape and rich history. Listen to voices that would normally live in your hands and demand your eyeballs.
