True Youth Bootlegs
The zine True Youth Bootlegs re-examines an emblematic youth subculture in word and image.
It’s published in a twin edition, each version addressing the topic according to the qualities of the respective medium. True Youth Bootlegs comes either as a, rather customary, stapled 64-page brochure — or as a light, viscose scarf. Utilizing and pairing these two objects allows for shifts in perspectives on the object of interest of True Youth Bootlegs: youth subcultures, in particular the Hardcore scene of the 1980s and 90s and its (lasting) impact.
