We are excited to say that æ 7 is now published. This edition was based on the theme of gender and we had great contributions from staff, students as well as Griselda Pollock, Susan Coles, Jen Delos Reyes and an interview with Sarah Cole about the project TRIBE at Peckham Platform.
This edition includes a free zine created by year 7 students with Luisa Martello and the Courtauld Institute. The zine explores the representation of women in the Courtauld collection, using John Berger and Griselda Pollock texts to do so. The zines were printed on a riso printer by the students at the Common House – an activist space and resource in Bethnal Green.
When the newspaper was printed the students spent time putting the zine in the newspapers!
æ 7 has been distributed throughout the UK, in galleries and schools. We also put a few copies in a few shops and at a supermarket in Welling.
