This would be the perfect seed collection for any library just starting to jump into Zine land and a perfect addition to any art, book arts, graphic design, communications, media, or publishing studies programs; especially at an institution that also has strong science and ecology collections.

While Kurt Allerslev has a Ph.D. in Phyto-chemistry from the City University of NY and has worked Internationally in the fields of cancer research and organic chemistry, he also has a lifelong interdisciplinary creative practice as a musician, cultural activist, and artist. Allerslev was a co-founding member of numerous pioneering art organizations and groups including: Gnip Gnop, an experimental band, (Madison, Wisconsin), the pirate radio station Steal This Radio (NYC) and Booklyn, Inc. where he is currently the President of Booklyn’s Board of Directors. For many years Allerslev was a squatter and legal assistant for other squatters in the Lower East Side of New York City.

Allerslev is an extremely charismatic and intelligent character and this is his personal Zine collection which reflects the dynamic and intriguing life he has lived and is living. Most of the publications are rare small editions published for small specific political or scientific communities or even for smaller activist affinity groups. As with any great collection this archive amply reflects the complexity of the collector’s interests, intellect, and aesthetics.

Major categories of Zines and independent publications in the collections include: alternative plant chemistry, anarchist and radical politics, collage, ecology, and squatting and housing rights.
