Acting in Numbers Zine (2018) was made on the occasion of
"Acting in Numbers", a solo exhitbion by Mary Coble at Galleri
Image, 2018. Uniting photography and performance, the works in the
exhibition focus on iconic symbols, bodily gestures, chants, and
signals used in political protest and as forms of resistance.
Photography and performance can offer distinct temporalities that
are urgent for capturing, sharing and activating often ephemeral
signs of defiance.

"Still Deferred" Zine, 2015
Made in conjunction with the exhibition "Still Deferred" at The Center of Arts and Education/Kontfrämjandet i Västerbotten, UMEÅ, Sweden.
As part of an ongoing inquiry into discriminatory practices against the queer community, Still Deferred addresses the targeted exclusion of men who have sex with men, or we could broadly say: gay men, from blood donation (in the United States and abroad). This is a political deferral based on homophobia and fear rather than on scientific fact, which has been argued time and again by medical researchers and gay rights advocates alike. This publication offers examples from that debate as well as documentation of my performance Deferral, which also functioned as a contribution to the discussion.
"Gestures of Defiance" is a zine made in conjunction with with
the exhibition of the same name at the Vita Kuben in Umeå,
Distributed at the "Gestures of Defiance" Exhibition, "Performing Defiance"-a live work at the MADE Festival in Umeå as well as at the RAPID PULSE International Performance Festival in Chicago, Illinois.
Printing support in Umeå, Sweden by arkitektkopia.se and the Vita Kuben. Printing support in Chicago, Illinois by Minuteman Press of Lyons.
