How do we feel in our city? Which spaces are ours, where do we feel at home, and where do we find ourselves uncomfortable, and why? Is it more comfortable at Akropolis or the public library? Who is building our city? How do we do it?
How do you see the world and how do I see it?
How is my reality different from yours?
We can’t get into another person’s brain, but can we see the world through their eyes?
Or show it?
What does it take to change reality? What about creating it?

This independent way of sharing information is used as a form of activism and art that does not require permission or approval and has no restrictions. A zine can be published by anyone who has something to say or show, and usually the author, editor, illustrator, and publisher are the same person or a small group of people.
