Encyclopedia Destructica Studios

156 41st Street Pittsburgh, PA 15201

The Encyclopedia Destructica Studios is where the E.D. zines are printed & bound in weekly public binding parties. Open houses occur regularly during Lawrenceville's Final Fridays. The studios also host Destructica release parties, art exhibitions, and in the future will host a Destructica residency program & Lecture Series.Encyclopedia Destructica is an art-zine inspired from the need to explore and export contemporary arts/culture in a way that’s accessible and easy to engage. These hand-bound issues provide a forum for a primordial dialogue between artists, harvesting themes from sketchbooks and journals. Encyclopedia Destructica hopes to create a community wide awareness of developing work by local artists and writers through the public forum of a zine and the intimate experience of a book. Created and distributed in a DIY fashion, Encyclopedia Destructica promotes this attitude as well as providing support and resources for local artists to create their own book/zine projects.
directionsAt the Intersection of 41st Street & Foster - 1 block from Butler towards the river.
