The blogroll photo below is shared under CC BY 2.5. It is of chairs on display at MOMA in New York City. In the background Modell 3107 in black and The Ant by Arne Jacobsen. The juxtaposition of old and new, especially with regards to taking styles from past periods and re-fitting them into modern art outside of their original context, is a common characteristic of postmodern art.
NEWS and EVENTS:
The processes of consolidating Beguine Again and The Bardo Group continues. Terri Stewart (Cloaked Monk) is overseeing the building of our new website and will implement the preparation of The BeZine in PDF format for easier reading.
Our updated Mission Statement is published, agreed upon by members of the Administrative Team and the Core Team and reviewed as well by some of our guest contributors and our readers.
Submission guidelines are under review and the updated version will post shortly as a Page along with agreed upon themes for upcoming months. This should make it easier for those who have an interest in contributing to this effort. Please read the Mission Statement and review several issues of the Zine before submitting.
