Don't Mourn, Organize

Underground alternative newspapers of the 1960s and 70s are important in US history and the history of the newspaper. Stefan Brecht (1924–2009), son of Bertolt Brecht, had a doctorate in philosophy and was an experimental theater performer, champion of radical culture, and avid collector of underground newspapers which he kept in his attic.

Realize Your Desires: Underground Press from the Library of Stefan Brecht is an exhibition at Printed Matter (231 Eleventh Ave, Chelsea, Manhattan) through July 31. It offers for sale papers that range in price from $20 to $1,500, and in date from the mid-1960s to the early ’70s.
