(sub)TEX was an independent newspaper published by the (sub)TEX Collective. The Collective was a non-profit group that used the newspaper and other projects to provide a forum for critical debate on political, cultural, social and economic issues. The initiatives of (sub)TEX aimed at resisting oppression based on class, gender, race and sexual orientation. (sub)TEX attempted to dismantle boundaries between institutions, communities and identities, and assisted activist efforts to challenge these boundaries.
