Curtis Mayfield

The poetics of music: a series of zines that focus on the poetics of these composers lyrics and the exchange of our interaction with lyrics being sung rather than read.

BlackMass Publishing is an independent publisher promoting and publishing books and zines by Black artists founded by Yusuf Hassan.

At once a structure of coherent units and a collection of disjointed parts, BlackMass invokes an aggregate of Blackness, of matter in resistance. Combining archival photographs and found print material with poetry and jazz music, BlackMass grapples with the blurred lines and idiosyncrasies which make up the collective improvisation of African diasporic culture.
