Synopsis
Coprophage. Homo. NUN is a faggot zine edited and self-produced by Smùt Madgett. The term "faggot" refers to male and female homosexuals. The zine is not really about coprophagia. The numbers are assembled according to the quantity and quality of the material received by Smùt Madgett and each issue has a title that is decided after collecting the material. The number of pages, in the intentions of those who founded it, is variable, as is the format. The b/w is an imposition due to the budget.

The intervention designed on occasion of Reread the Archive - entitled 1997 - consists of a set of small-format sheets. The chaotic result of textual and visual fragments originates from a letter printed on A4 that I wrote during the three days of the workshop and the various meetings planned. The themes that emerged have reactivated some childhood memories that relate with behaviors typical of Italian culture and school education. The desire is not to read the original letter and memory but give to the reader the possibility to create a free and personal narration.
