The Wild: Zine Launch

About this event:

The Wild is a series of pop-up bookstores and art experiences inspired by the tradition of Black fugitivity, initiated by Tracian Meikle and Marly Pierre-Louis.

In a zine-making workshop on November 14, 2021, facilitated by Marly Pierre-Louis and Kimberley Cosmilla, 11 of us gathered and collaged material found in Black literature and personal archives, creating roadmaps for liberation. All zines were riso printed.

During the launch Kimberley and Marly will discuss the radical history of zine making and riso printing and what it means to produce and proliferate narratives outside of traditional publishing institutions.

Zines made by workshop participants have been assembled into one collection that will be on sale during the launch.


W139 is changing their admission policy to explore a principle of solidarity in a new way: Pay-it-forward. This new move is part of a sustainable plan to create a diversity of funding sources for W139. When visiting W139, your entrance ticket costs €3, but you can pay €6, €9 or more to pay-it-forward, for someone in the community who also wants to see art or join events, but is less financially fortunate.
