School for Poetic Computation: Digital Love Languages - Zines as a loving practice of abolitionJul 2020Jul 2020Guest workshop leaderRemote/New York, NYZines as a loving practice of abolition is a workshop which presupposes zines as a technology or tool for sharing information, building and maintaining networks of affinity or larger sociopolitical movements. We can feel the affect of zines in their capacity to serve as resources for vulnerable and oppressed communities; communicate through prison walls; support a world of movements from the Black Freedom Struggle to the Hawaiian sovereignty movement; build autonomous networks; publish outside of mainstream channels; and expand radical imaginations. The affective nature of zines can be understood as love letters to the friends, family, community and networked computational devices of whom and which we share a world. Zines are integral in the way we both understand and construct the world we exist in. But like any other love letter, our efforts to be earnest are often reliant on the limitations of language and other violent systems of control which have a hold on our imagination or capacity for self-expression. In this workshop we will problematize the historical role that zines have played in DIY (do it yourself) culture and code our own web zine as an exercise of abolition and continued commitment to struggle—whether in expressing ourselves in the next love letter or ending violent systems of punishment and enslavement. This workshop is organized and facilitated by Neta Bomani for the Digital Love Languages class taught by Melanie Hoff at the School for Poetic Computation.http://lovelanguages.melaniehoff.com/zines-as-a-loving-practice-of-abolition-with-neta-bomani/

Documenting Black People's Stories Through Zine MakingFeb 2020Feb 2020PanelistNew York, NYNeta Bomani and Mariame Kaba discussed their new zine collaboration, “Groundhog Day: The Killing of Bonita Carter.” Groundhog Day excavates part of the history of Black people’s resistance to state violence (specifically policing). It’s often said that few people rally around the injury or death of Black women to demand justice. Yet the truth is that there are examples that contradict this assertion. The resistance varies in scale and impact and it is sometimes hidden from our view. However, where there is injustice, you will also find some resistance especially led by Black women. https://amc.alliedmedia.org/amc2020-session-schedule

Flawless Hackathon: Create your own tech zineApr 2019Apr 2019Workshop leaderNew York, NYCo-lead a workshop at Flawless Hackathon 2019 with Taeyoon Choi. We helped workshop participants create their own zines about software or tech culture. The New York Tech Zine Fair team introduced the ways in which visual artists, writers, engineers, technologists, illustrators, and designers use the space of zines and similar DIY creations to examine what we consider to be “technology” and offered a fresh perspective on digital culture. Participants learned about storytelling with zines and simple binding techniques.http://flawlesshacks.com/#workshop-zine
