Resistance culture and alternative media: the Portuguese punk fanzines
AbstractAlthough fanzines existed before punk appeared, the truth is that they only became important alternative spaces to conventional media when they devoted themselves to the punk genre, in a kind of materialisation of the DIY ethos. Since the 1970’s this universe has expanded, not only thematically and stylistically, but also in terms of both geographic coverage and the types of communicational support used to produce and disseminate fanzines. This article takes an approach that goes beyond the Anglo-Saxon reality and seeks to look at fanzines as “communities” founded around a cultural object, and at the production of texts, photos and other materials about the punk scene in Portugal from 1978 to the present day.
