Ricardo Miranda Zuñiga www.ambriente.com
In his art work, themes from urbanization and immigration are investigated through the lens of economics. These realities formulate not only the world we live in, but also more importantly the lives we lead.
Eric Doeringer   www.ericdoeringer.com
Much of the art of Eric Doeringer has to do with subverting the traditional role of the artwork.  He has tattooed copies of his moles onto other people’s bodies and Bootlegs modern masters. His work forces a constant reevaluation of authenticity.
Kanarinka & Pirun from The Institute of Infinitely Small Things www.infinitelysmallthings.net
The only way to fundamentally alter our world is via the discovery and creation of infinitely small things. Before radical shifts there are infinitely small things that have led to miniature reconsiderations.

Mission Statement
Bluestockings is a radical bookstore, fair trade cafe, and activist center in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Through words, art, food, activism, education, and community, we strive to create a space that welcomes and empowers all people. We actively support movements that challenge hierarchy and all systems of oppression, including but not limited to patriarchy, heterosexism, the gender binary, white supremacy and classism, within society as well as our own movements. We seek to make our space and resources available to such movements for meetings, events, and research. Additionally, we offer educational programming that promotes centered, strategic, and visionary thinking, towards the realization of a society that is infinitely creative, truly democratic, equitable, ecological, and free.
By train: F train to 2nd Ave, exit at the 1st Ave, and walk one block south.
By car: If you take the Houston exit off of the FDR, then turn left onto Essex (aka Avenue A), then right on Rivington, and finally right on Allen, you will be very, very close.
