Chicago Sun-Times prints first edition of the year 2000

Newspaper presses, circa 1971, co-star in Stephen Spielberg’s film The Post, about The Washington Post. Vintage New York Post presses in the Bronx stand in for the presses printing the Pentagon Papers.

Here’s what the Chicago Sun-Times presses looked and sounded like in 2000. They were located at 401 North Wabash Avenue. Demolished in 2004. Replaced by Trump International Hotel and Towers. The footage features members of Chicago Typographical Union local 16 operating Goss Headliner Mark II presses.

It was shot by Bill Stamets for Chicago In The Year 2000 (CITY 2000) on New Year’s Eve 2000.

Elements of Vogue: A Case Study in Radical Performance is the first major show in Spain to survey the history of African American performance. Curated by Sabel Gavaldón and Manuel Segade, the show explores the intersections between race, gender and social class in Black popular culture and art. Voguing, a dance form invented by queer people of African or Latino descent, reveals itself as a case study to understand the emergence of the pose as a form of resistance, and its ability to articulate new social forms.

Media Burn provided two videos documenting the 1992 Queer Nation’s candidate for president of the United States, Joan Jett Blakk.

The exhibition runs November 17, 2017 – May 6, 2018.
