Indie city: The cover of the new issue of New Asshole (above) and Manya Scheps posing with another zine at a college art show (right).

“With New Asshole comes hope. Just kidding. I know this has been said before, but until the DIY spaces and artists in this city see serious funding and recognition, we’re in a rut. There are only so many things you can do with limited resources and a recycled audience. Within that close-knit social sphere there needs to be discussion and doubt. We’re asking questions, but they’re along the lines of, ‘Is this fun?’ We should probably start thinking more ‘Is this conceptually legitimate?’ or ‘Do I hate this?’” ■ New Asshole

Issue 1.2 of is available via subscription at newasshole.com and at AHN|VHS, 319A N. 11th St. 917.848.2640. ahnvhs.com
