Definition of the Avant Garde

"Avant-garde (French pronunciation: [avɑ̃ɡaʁd]) means "advance guard" or "vanguard".[1] The adjective form is used in English, to refer to people or works that are experimental or innovative, particularly with respect to art, culture, and politics.

Avant-garde represents a pushing of the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or the status quo, primarily in the cultural realm. The notion of the existence of the avant-garde is considered by some to be a hallmark of modernism, as distinct from postmodernism. Many artists have aligned themselves with the avant-garde movement and still continue to do so, tracing a history from Dada through the Situationists to postmodern artists such as the Language poets around 1981.[2]"
From Wikipedia on the Avant Garde movement

Still have some copies of my latest issue of my zine "Vice". Features art, abstract poetry, music and quite a different mix of stuff. I've been trying to keep at it with experimenting with styles of writing and art in them. So I think you guys might like it! I'm also looking to trade with some avant-garde style zines. So I hope I'll be able to trade with someone! Message me on here if interested, or email me at: shayanshafii@gmail.com

Thanks!

Thought you chaps might be interested in Princeton's Blue Mountain Project -- a digital archive of pre-1922 modernist and avant-garde serials/ periodicals.

Direct link to the archive, here.

It's possible to read online or snag .pdfs.

Now, I'm not saying they look very avant-garde *now* but they are of historical interest and might still be grist for the mill. :^)

I have started up a zine/books/art online distro to sell mine and others work.

The focus is on art/publications that are erotic and subversive, sensual and confusing

It is early days but if you are interested please check outwww.facebook.com/theoysterknife and see if you like it.

Etsy shop to follow soon!

Im doing a zine of volume of horror stories and i want people to share thier work in the black book, the subject can be whatever but as long the horror element is still in the story, the creepier the better,it can go up four pages long. It can be any word format and send a email  to shanpking@yahoo.co.uk with short paragraph of who you are and whats your story about and why chosen to it, thanks.

I am interested.  I am for anything experimental.  I am new to zines and have not made one yet.  I am an animator and mixed media artist.
