NYC -- Online Squatter Zines in Shop/Museum Collab

May 17—June 3, 2022
38 St Marks Place

In celebration of Lower East Side History Month, Printed Matter / St Marks asked the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) to organize a window installation of zines and ephemera from the MoRUS archives. Self-published zines are a cultural mainstay of the Lower East Side, allowing diverse subcultures to document their scenes, as well as to share new music and writing, and distribute political literature and propaganda.

You can find copies of displayed zines inside Printed Matter / St. Marks or in MoRUS’s virtual zine library at
