FIGHT / SURRENDER
2017. Photocopied tête-bêche pamphlet-stitched zine with screenprinted cover, 5x7".
Collaged text sourced from a year's worth of articles on the topic of global warming and related subjects.
Part of the GIVE UP AND PARTY body of work, which draws from a list of human responses to crisis from Margaret Atwood's Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth. In Atwood's fictional epilogue, a ghost lists FIGHT and SURRENDER as the human responses to a wartime crisis.
My zine, with its circular format (tête-bêche), aims to melt the distinction between opposites. If the end of the world has already happened, both acceptance and courage will be vital to our new orientation.
