CATALOGUE


TOC Exhibit Damaged Goods/Resistance, resilience.
An initiatory dive into the DIY universe of graphzine, fanzine and micro-publishing

The TOC exhibition, organised at the Yellow Cube Gallery in Paris, relates the history of graphzine with the contemporary French / European DIY scene.

Damaged Goods presents a selection of the work of artists who have embarked on an adventure in the world of graphzine, from 1975 to the present day. Immerse yourself in forty years of independent and undergraphic edition freely inspired by the theme of revolts, resistances and resiliences

Between alternative and satirical reviews, as well as cartoons, artists books and art brut, these publications, which exist in multiple formats, continue to inspire generations of artists with their abundant iconography and their resistant and resilient approaches, which lie resolutely on the fringes of traditional editing and the official art world.

Inspired by the chaotic, prolific and accumulative organisation of the underground scene, the exhibition, curated by Alessandro Urso, delves into the historical archives of La Chienne, Le Dernier Cri and The United Dead Artists and offers open connections along with details of DIY practices in the fields of production and dissemination for new generations.

The opening will take place on Saturday 29 August, from 19:30, and will begin with the presentation of the first monographic graphzine issue, TOC Brutismes, dedicated to the Contrebande Collective commented by Vittorio Parisi, followed by an experimental cinema screening curated by Stefano Miraglia.
