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

New pages! One for resources and one for people to add avant garde/conceptual zines.  I am looking to buy anything artsy and pretentious ;) And maybe swap, once I finish my own zine.

OK everyone, remember we talked about a collaborative A.G. and then we all kind faded (well I did).  I want to do this!  Is anyone interested in contributing?

Submission Guidelines for issue #4 of my fanzine Muchacha

Theme: “Who Says Feminists Don’t Have A Sense Of Humor?”

The purpose of this issue is to combat the stereotype that feminists are always angry/unfunny/too serious/uptight. I’m looking for satirical/humorous thoughts, poetry, stories, essays, quotes, rants, analysis, art, collages, doodles, comics, or photography from a feminist perspective. Whether it’s half a page or 4 pages, e-mail me at Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com to submit your work. The deadline is September 1st. Help me in reclaiming the fact that “funny feminist” is not an oxymoron.

Funny Feminists Unite! 

Love & Revolution,

Daisy

"Feminist humor raises consciousness. And the reason it's funny is because it stands something on its head. Goodness knows you've got to have a sense of humor if you do feminism full-time, I tell you." - Eleanor Smeal

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ASUANG by PAPER MONSTER PRESS

Asuang is an umbrella term for creatures that people our imagination. As blood suckers, they engender in us, a fear of the dark, of morbidity, of paleness, of incense. The fear that desires, the fear that suffocates, not just creatures but open spaces and high places. Fear of beings that when looked at mirrors or through other eyes, resemble perhaps, ourselves? Then here maybe, there be monsters?

Asuang then calls not just for darkness but for hallucinogen, psychedelia, kaleidoscopic narratives in whatever genre.

Specifically, we ask for:
1. 1-3 poems/ essays/ flash fiction (less than 500 words, English or Filipino)

2. 1-3 artworks in black/ white (in JPEG format)

3. 1-3 sound pieces in MP3 or Wav format

4. Critical essays about the small press/ underground publishing/ the culture of fanzines (also under 500 words)

5. Reviews of any issue of Paper Monster Press (and we’ve done 6 so far)
a. Pyrotechnic Poetry 1
b. Pyrotechnic Poetry 2
c. S/trip-hop
d. Dream(pop)
e. Queer Punk
f. SANDIGmaan

6. A theme for 1 print year
Ex. LOST IN TRANSLATION year
a. Issue 1: Atlantis (about forgetting/ resurfacing/ the abyss/ depths/ drowning/ swan diving)
b. Issue 2: Free Tibet (about culture clash/ Buddhism/ heights/ climbing/ pure dizziness of clouds)
c. Issue 3: Time-space Warp (about timezones/ cultural differences/ time and space/ reincarnation/ and the endless echoes we can never reach)
d. Issue 4: Labyrinths (canals/ road bridges/ the strange and devious routes we take to fantasy/ intoxication/ escape)

THE FINE PRINT
1. Send all submissions to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com with the heading: ATTN: ASUANG SUBMISSION
2. The deadline for submissions is on May 31, 2012.
3. Payment is one contributor copy and that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from seeing your name in print. ;)

SANDIGmaan. (One World/ One ♥ para kay Lirio!) DEADLINE EXTENDED! February 15, 2012.
-SANDATA AKO NI LIRIO -JK

Paper Monster Press's 7th issue is a tribute, a dialogue, an ekphrasis of Lirio Salvador, his words and his works.

... ... More than this though is his indefatigable energy to work, to share his thoughts, to move in the infinity that is the universe, and stand as one; not alone, but at one with the universe.

Lirio often says: "Love one another". "All is well." "All will be well". And it is this energy, this spirit, that we wish to bring to the 7th issue. SANDIGAN TAYO NI LIRIO.

Dealing with the theme: SANDIGmaan accepts works inspired by and/or written/produced for Lirio Salvador. His SANDATAS, the music of Elemento, and before that Intermidya, the organic unity that comes with fusing sound and sculpture into one Dali-like, almost surreal vision. The cosmic cannibalism spoken of by Dali, comes alive in Lirio's works. Everything is surreal, and real, because actualized.

Having said that, how you interpret, move with, or antagonize the theme is up to you.

1. Submit up to 3 literary works (poetry, flash fiction, essay) in English/ Filipino. Submissions must not exceed 500 words.
2. Submit up to 3 artworks (paintings, photographs, sculptures, collages, etc.) in JPEG or PDF format. Submissions may be colored and/or black/white.
3. Submit up to 3 sound pieces in MP3 or Wav format.
4. All submissions should be sent to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com.
5. The deadline for submissions is on February 15, 2012.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
*Submissions that are meant for One World/ One Love will also be considered for SANDIGmaan. Thank you dear friends! [;)]

ONE LAST RALLYING CRY FOR QUEER PUNK: DEADLINE EXTENDED (OCTOBER 31, 2011)

 

You draw lines and you draw lines, and then you shape boxes and boxes and try to decide which ones fit you best. But have you ever stepped outside the line, and think, coming this far, how much farther would you dare? That’s why, people who are openly queer call this term coming out of the closet. Because we close ourselves, and cage our hearts, and throw away the key. This issue, we dare you to come out with us. Cross those lines on tightropes, shrug off gender boundaries, do away with stereotypes. We are who we are, and if we know this then labels don’t matter at all. Because we’ve got to honour the differences, or what’s the same wouldn’t count.

 

And who could be more queer, or more punk than us? We ask you once again to trust us with your submissions. We ask you to explore the boundaries of gender, race, stereotypes, rebellion, and anarchy. We ask you to give us your poetry, your art, and your music, in its most rebellious, most queer punk. Mainstream or underground, gay or lesbian, hardcore or soft porn, and hey, even alpha males are welcome. We want you to colour our worlds queer(punk). Now there are no rules, no boundaries, we’ll make our love on wastelands and through the barricades (Spandau Ballet).

 

We are interested in works that question, that reveal, that critique, that ask, that makes us curious. We want to see colors, and explosions, and madness, we want works that ignite our passion for equality and justice. We want works that ask for human dignity for all. We want works that make us want to shrug off oppression, and put it aside to forever after never be worn by anyone again. Because Who in the New World does not have a horror of the past, whether his ancestor was torturer or victim? Who in the depth of conscience, is not silently screaming for pardon or revenge? The pulse of New World history is the racing pulse beat of fear, the tiring cycles of stupidity and greed (Derek Walcott). And it need be that no longer. In the dawn of the New Age, we ask you to join us to fight for human dignity for all. Gay or lesbian, man or woman, colored or white; all different, all beautiful. And in this great future, you can forget your past, so dry your tears, I say (Bob Marley).

 

BY GENRE:

 

  1. Literary (English/ Filipino). 500 words or less.
  2. Visual Art (colored/ black and white). JPEG Format.
  3. Music. MP3 format.

 

Send everything to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com until October 31, 2011. Thank you and support the small press!
