The GroundUp

Type Of Organization
Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
The halls of academies may be hallowed and their journals prestigious and the hip and evocative leftist publication delivers an impressively holy and profane zine (printed or online) but we neither hold the reigning theoretical positions or the most provocative ones as satisfactory nor is art satisfactory to us because it years for change. We are a publication and cultural inquiry with texts and art that grapples with destiny and fights for transformation.
