THE STICKY INSTITUTE

The Sticky Institute is all about zine culture. Think Richard Neville and Martin Sharp, think counterculture, think 1960’s underground press. And indeed, a small shop aptly located in the Melbourne underground - Campbell Arcade - Sticky’s will transport you back into an era of badge-making, typewriters, and print with attitude. Spend a couple of hours of your Saturday perusing the shelves which are stocked with independent zine titles. 

Sticky is shop 10 in Campbell Arcade, Degraves Subway. It’s the old retail arcade under Flinders St station. You can access it from the subway stairs on Flinders Street near Degraves Street.

ZINE PORN! 

[SOFT WHEEZE]

“Ableism must be included in our analysis of oppression and in our conversations about violence, responses to violence and ending violence. Ableism cuts across all of our movements because ableism dictates how bodies should function against a mythical norm—an able-bodied standard of white supremacy, heterosexism, sexism, economic exploitation, moral/religious beliefs, age and ability. Ableism set the stage for queer and trans people to be institutionalized as mentally disabled; for communities of color to be understood as less capable, smart and intelligent, therefore “naturally” fit for slave labor; for women’s bodies to be used to produce children, when, where and how men needed them; for people with disabilities to be seen as “disposable” in a capitalist and exploitative culture because we are not seen as “productive;” for immigrants to be thought of as a “disease” that we must “cure” because it is “weakening” our country; for violence, cycles of poverty, lack of resources and war to be used as systematic tools to construct disability in communities and entire countries.”

Her mental age is about three years old. She loves Winnie the Pooh, Beauty & the Beast, and Sesame Street. Even though the below picture is unconvincing.

Mimi Thi Nguyen is author of the book The Gift of Freedom: War, Debt, and Other Refugee Passages. She also writes the zine Slander, and edited the influential zine Evolution of a Race Riot about people of color in punk rock. In this episode, Mimi discusses her life as a punk rock professor: how she brings her anti-authoritarianism to the classroom, how the public university system is becoming increasingly privatized and corporatized, and how post-colonial feminist theory informed her angry letter to the editor at Maximum Rock’n’Roll.

Today we’re borrowing some items from our neighbors in Special Collections to feature a collection of zines donated by Sarah Wolfe.

Before becoming a gifted psychiatrist helping troubled children and teens, Wolfe had struggled with mental health issues of her own during the early 1990s. Along with the excellent healthcare she received from those who helped inspire her future career path, she also found solace in riot grrrl music and zines, with their emphasis on female empowerment and self-actualization. In 2008, Wolfe donated her zines to the University of Iowa, where the collection has become a valuable resource for researchers of third-wave feminism, underground music, and fan culture. 

Sarah Wolfe and her sister Suzy were killed during a break-in at their home in Pittsburgh earlier this year. Family, friends and colleagues have put together a number of charities to help celebrate their lives. The latest effort, WolfePack Goods, sells artwork to fund a scholarship to Pittsburgh’s Girls Rock camp in Sarah and Suzy’s names. Please see below for more information.
