Musezine 42: Made Out of Stardust

“...We are biologically connected to every other living thing in the

world. We are chemically connected to all of the molecules of

the Earth, and we are atomically connected to all of the atoms

in the universe. We are not figuratively, but literally stardust.”

-Neil deGrasse Tyson

This year we chose the theme “Made Out of Stardust” for our zine. In this era of

divisiveness, we choose to embrace our differences and celebrate what we all

have in common. Throughout this year, we have reflected on the impact of racial

injustice and women’s inequality in particular, and how we can actively engage

in eradicating discrimination. This zine contains original paintings, drawings,

poems, and photography created by the members of Teen Council.

Created in 2005, the Bronx Museum Teen Council offers dynamic experiences

with contemporary art and culture to urban youth through an intensive afterschool

program for teens. Structured around video production, artist interviews,

zine publications, and exhibition curation, this 8-month program provides teens

with an open forum for the expression of idea and dialogue on issues affecting

young people today.
