A zine curated artfully by Bianca Saunders titled 'Personal Politics' detailing the development and thinking behind  'Personal Politics collection (2017) shown at the RCA show for LFWM . 

'Personal Politics Zine' explores themes of black masculinity, examining it with some of London’s most creative and critical minds. Many of those Saunders collaborated with have explored themes of black masculinity within their own work. Caleb Femi, the Young People’s Laureate for London, as well as James MassiahAbondance Matanda and Seye Isikulu have all lent their words to the project.  This is Illustrated alongside Bianca Saunders working process using photography, drawings and notes.

The Zine follows through  transcripts from the "Personal Politics Documentary" and  conversations artists such as  Thomas J Price and Urbain Wolf . It touches on topics relating to gender, masculinity, patriarchy, in a way more commonly reserved for men’s spaces in private.  This raises questions about how men of colour exist in their masculinity in London today towards challenging these tropes.  The zine looks at  preconceived notions of masculinity through a permissive and impartial lens. Adding another layer to the current social conversation.

Overall the zine provides a unique look in the research to design working process.
