Disability Zines Exhibit
Curated by Lenny Sydney Adler for the Barnard Library Zine Collection
This exhibit, installed on the occasion of the Barnard Center for Research on Women Scholar & Feminist Conference, "Movements: Politics, Performance and Disability," seeks to shed light on the voices of women living and working with disabilities-telling their stories via the D.I.Y. mythos of the personal, self-published zine. Featuring a range of pieces published within the past dozen or so years, each edition contextualizes the writer's view as related to the individual's experience in punk rock, feminism, queer culture, and film. Community care, motherhood, and the underpinnings of the medical industry are discussed. Women of color, size, and different economic backgrounds are represented. This exhibit is made up of zines from the Barnard Library Zine Collection archival and circulating collections.
