Memes of Yesteryear in CABARET VOLTAIRE!

 “Long Before we had theories of such as transmedia and convergence culture, there was the late 1970s xerographed, radical mail art zine, CABVOLT” says Frederick Luis Aldama, Professor and Author of other books regarding comics, such as
Latinx Comic Book Storytelling: An Odyssey by Interview. This reprinting of CABVOLT, lovingly done by SDSU, in addition to essays and an exchange with the creator of the dadazine collection via mail, Ferrera Brain Pan, gives the reader a better understanding, insight, and appreciation for the predecessor of the alternative comics industry.  



 All in all, CABARET VOLTAIRE: FLUXUS WEST SAN DIEGO AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA is not only an entertaining collection of vintage mail art in which SDSU served as a hub for, but also gives context to the absurd, dadaist art movement of the late 20th century.
