- ZINE - Um poema para cada sereia | dudanaotemduvida.near erikamachado.near
Members: Duda Las Casas [dudanaotemduvida.near] and Erika Machado [erikamachado.near]
To make 3 zines with a selection of unpublished poems by 3 Portuguese language poets. The purpose of the zine “one poem for each mermaid” is to publish the content without any editorial or market concern. The idea of mermaids, because they inspire several poets and thinkers, with this idea of half woman and half fish, regardless of the country. But in this case they would be mermaids that express themselves in the Portuguese language. The most extensive references to mermaids are in the Odyssey, the Argonáutica, then Kafka, and today the mermaids still represent fantasy, the erotic, and the various possibilities that surround the theme in contemporary culture.
The idea is to make an independent publication as a means of divulging artistic, literary, musical, underground works, linked to social movements, arts, music, and cinema. It is not a book, it is not a magazine, it is not cordel literature, and it can be all of these at the same time.
The zines one poem for each mermaid will be used to disseminate poetry, illustrations, short stories, to address issues such as feminism, immigration, and erotic and underground poetry.
They are distributed in several cultural venues in the city and will be registered on a website and on CRIATURA&BERI’s Mintbase for those who want to access online.
