Teen Dream

As part of CentralTrak’s current exhibition, The Zine Society Library, Dallas-based brothers and business partners Ean Schuessler and Erik Schuessler will speak about how making zines as teenagers evolved into a legitimate and respected profession. Zine-making and zine-consumption was a significant format for artists and activists to share info, find and identify subcultures before the internet was widely available.

The Zine Society Library exhibition is interactive, allowing gallery patrons to discover and enjoy small press and self-published art zines by a diverse group of artists and illustrators. The designers currently operate Brainfood, a multimedia company with national accounts such as Ryder, Hughes Research Labs, Pepsico/Yum (KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut), KB Home and Broadcast.com.
