Members of the group were invited to Bennington College in Bennington, Vermont to host a series of zine making, and print making workshops. They also showcased two films, The Dolls of Lisbon and Self Medicated, followed by a Q&A session. We would like to thank the students of Bennington for having us out!

Psycho Moto Zine was a periodical published from the late 1980s to early 2000s, consisting mostly of short stories, reviews and artwork. This fanzine would later birth the Antagonist Art Movement, a consortium of like-minded artists, writers, filmmakers, etc. The magazine was originally published in 1989 under the name East Coast Exchange by Ethan H. Minsker. Copies were produced illicitly by friends who worked in copy shops during Minsker’s college years at School of Visual Arts in New York City and in Washington D.C. during Minsker’s summer breaks. By 1994 Psycho Moto Zine (PMZ) had transformed into an arts and literary fanzine with reviews that covered underground art, fanzines, films and music. This connection between different creative elements was the inspiration for what would later become the Antagonist Art Movement.
