ORIGINAL COLLAGE ARTWORK © ARA MGRDICHIAN
EXILE was a bi-weekly, bi-lingual, bi-cultural literary supplement, published via Asbarez Publishing from August of 1986 to October of 1987, founded and operated by a group of emerging and established writers and artists from a variety of fields. Works were published in Armenian and English, accompanied by collages, appropriated images, and original illustrations.
Scanned and reduced copies of the original, newsprint versions of all published issues of EXILE are available for perusal via the Scribd navigable PDFs in our JOURNAL section.
A forthcoming new anthology called THE EXILE PROJECT, which will include new images, writings, and sound from EXILE alums, as well as from emerging new EXILE voices--in both digital and hardcopy formats--is also in the works.
EXILE came about at a very interesting time culturally and politically--between Diasporan armed struggle and the beginning of the Karabakh movement.
The present is no less interesting.
