While it’s wonderful that MoMA PS1 is bringing it’s art-star-laden Rockaway! exhibition to Fort Tilden this summer, I’d like to point out that Tilden was home to a much more organic, arts movement long before Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc on the Rockaways…
Since his first release in 2011, Carnage has quickly made a name for himself as a purveyor of high quality graffiti zines. Aside from selling his own zines, he also distributes work by like-minded individuals, like the sold out Greetings from Detroit from earlier this year which presented images of Detroit by 5 photographers from New York and California. And now a limited run of Droid 907’s Sex or Suicide is available.
In Sex or Suicide Droid offers us a tantalizing glimpse into a world of sex, drugs and rocking rollers, interspersing stories of drunken encounters under bridges with the soul-baring recollections of a free spirit, photographs and numbered lists of names and phrases.
Carnage will be releasing his next zine, Lost in Shibuya, this coming Saturday, December 14, from 7-9pm at the City Reliquary (with an online release to follow on Monday, December 16). Please support these fine zinemakers.
