Counter Culture – The emergence of a new social subject 1983-2012

Negro #2 (April 2006), part of my early first diy attempts (under the nickname "Chaos JV") to self-publish some primitive 'n' photocopied anarchopunk comix zine, is featured as a part of the fanzine, underground comics, disc and cd selections of the Exhibition entitled “Counter Culture: The emergence of a new social subject 1983-2012" (" Αντικουλτούρα – Η ανάδυση ενός νέου κοινωνικού υποκειμένου 1983-2012").
The show takes place at CAMP (4 Efpolidos & 2 Apellou Street - Kotzia Square, Athens), from October 22 till November 20, following the exhibition “The Athens Underground”.

The exhibition presents with particular emphasis the antisystemic work of visual artists, whether it concerns portable artworks or street art, activist posters and improvised publications. From Convoy, the last libertarian culture magazine of the first period and at the same time the first of the second period, to fanzines, punk gigs’ posters, the high school students’ occupation movement, the squatting, and comics and from publications supporting those incarcerated in mental hospitals and the criminal prisoners to magazines that highlight gender identities.

Additionally, a richly illustrated book is released with analytical approaches to the counter culture phenomenon by researchers and scholars. There, you may find some references to "Negro" and "Negligent Romantix", among many of other zines' titles as well...
