Description

The Newsstand was a pop-up conceptual retail store that transformed an ordinary subway hub into a mecca for independently published magazines, books, comics, and zines. Located within Brooklyn's Metropolitan Avenue L/G stop in 2013, the temporary space hosted events and art exhibitions in which the artists, acting as guest clerks, were given carte blanche to transform the space. In November 2015, The Newsstand will be re-created and built to scale at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, including the zines and books sold in its original location. The Newsstand catalogue features images of the zines, books, and ephemera sold; documentation of the events and exhibitions; images of the guest clerks and artists; essays by leading cultural figures; and interviews with the publishers, artists, commuters, MTA workers, and police officers influenced by The Newsstand. Designed in the style of a zine, this book not only documents a prolific time within independent publishing but also the thriving community that supports it.

Reviews
"Unlike most subway newsstands in NYC, which sell candy and the Daily News, this newsstand sold zines and lots of them. . .["The Newsstand"is] an invigorating reminder of the power of self-publishing and I hope it inspires more of these types of newsstands to pop up."-"PUBLISHERS WEEKLY""
