Description:
After being kicked out of her apartment in Brooklyn in 1992, and unable to afford rent anywhere near her school, young art student Ash Thayer found herself with few options. Luckily she was welcomed as a guest into See Skwat (C-Squat), a punk squat house established in the early-80’s, located in Alphabet City.
The squatters were forced to be secretive and exclusive as a result of their poor legal standing in the buildings. Few outsiders were welcome and fewer photographers or journalists. Thayer’s camera accompanied her everywhere as she lived at the squats and worked alongside other residents.
Kill City: Lower East Side Squatters 1992-2000 is a a rare look back at these downtown squat communities.
