finishing off #rivet5 with the final black layer! this page is one of my experimental poems

how to bottle happiness

an artist’s multiple that captures a brief moment you can smile at. 

1. green grass picked while the afternoon sun was shining and I was thinking about how much I love somebody. 

bottle, capture, sell, save, collect, share 

schedule meet-ups for self-guided tours of the ago and distribute a small publication + golf pencil that asks these (maybe more?) questions and also gives room to write a response or sketch.

Dear Theory Boner:

I submit to you a zine I made in December 2010 called “a heart that won’t beat”. I made it while reading Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex. Some of the text draws inspiration from this source. The poems and cut-and-paste collage images respond to my own feelings about my past sexual trauma and abusive relationships, and feelings of my (female) body as objectified and divorced from personhood in culture and art. I’m sending this zine in full (excluding blank pages). Please use any or all images you like for your publication.

note: I sent the whole zine to the submission email but I’ve only posted the cover here to illustrate my blog post about the matter :)

Mary Mack and I are putting together a zine about art and theory; THEORY BONER! This is our call for submissions for visual artists whose work is *turned on* by feminist//queer//anti-racist theory!Sexualizing theory means a great deal to us! We get turned on by cultural theory that allows us to make connections between our art and our subjectivities.
However we realize that accessing education / queer / feminist / anti-racist theory is a privilege and not accessible to everyone. So we are asking visual artists to think about a feminist/queer/anti-racist theory and conceptualize a piece for our THEORY BONER!Our goal for THEORY BONER is first to decentralize the power and privilege that sanctifies theory in the academy by creating a new opportunity for access and engagement. 
Are you turned on by feminist / queer theory? Do you read theory and make art? Or maybe you’ve never had formal education in regards to feminist/queer theory but it informs your identity,community or sexual practice? Regardless, almost all feminist and queer theory is relational! Some questions we’re asking ourselves while making this zine include: What does art look like when it engages with theory? How can theory be more accessible? How does poverty impact our engagement with art and theory? Queer theory // feminist theory // embodiment theory // anti-racist theory // transnational theory // trauma theory // film theory // Post-structural theory // semiotic theory // psychoanalytic theory // marxist theory // post-colonial theory // anti-racist theory // popular cultural theory = THEORY BONERSubmission guidelines:please email all files to theoryboner@gmail.com in pdf, jpeg or word files and please make sure all images are 300 dpiWe will be releasing the zine at expozine/cazine in the fall. here is a link to open source queer/feminist/anti-racist theory: http://flanneryogonner.tumblr.com/post/40237682151/free-pdf-books-on-race-gender-sexuality-class-andWe will upload more to a dropbox soon!

The Toronto Zine Library is run by a collective of zine readers, zine makers and librarians who are looking to make zines more accessible in Toronto.
