Join Artbook in the MoMA PS1 Book Space on Sunday, March 25 from 3PM-5PM for a panel discussion titled "Publishing Politics: The Funambulist + Bronx Narratives + Here There Be Dragons."
Politically-driven publications, whatever their form (magazines, podcast, books, etc.), are not simply reflecting on how to produce powerful content, but also on how the politics of production of such content live up to a high ethical and political standard. In this conversation, Léopold Lambert (The Funambulist), Dondre Green (Bronx Narratives), and Jess Myers (Here There Be Dragons), will present their respective work through this perspective, as well as discuss the various challenges encountered by their editorial endeavors.
The Funambulist is a digital and print magazine that examines the politics of space and bodies. It was created by Léopold Lambert, a trained architect turned writer and editor, as a blog in 2010 and augmented by a podcast in 2013. The print version began in September 2015, with new thematic issues released bi-monthly.
Bronx Narratives is an online and print publication that provides a fresh view on our community. The Bronx is a place that is often associated with negative stereotypes, so we've created a platform for our readers to help understand the lifestyle of the Bronx. Created and run by Bronx-born photographer Dondre Green and fellow Bronxites, we invite you to experience our borough through our eyes.
Here There Be Dragons is a podcast that began at MIT, where Jess Myers studies city planning. She brought it to life with the wonderful CoLab Radio. It started off as a reflection on the way the city takes a personal shape and size based on a person's experiences. It became a podcasting project about fear, identity, and urban life.
This event is free and open to the public. To pre-order copies of The Funambulist and Bronx Narratives email firstname.lastname@example.org!
