The Mobile Homestead says
Join Fifth Estate at the Mike Kelley Mobile Homestead for our 2015 Fall exhibition opening reception.

Fifth Estate, the nation’s oldest and still thriving underground newspaper, celebrates its 50th anniversary in a big way with exhibitions at two Detroit museums this fall. Together the exhibitions provide intimate insights into the influence of the radical media, with its affiliated artists and activists, in the greater Detroit area, throughout the United States, and around the globe.

"You Can’t Print That: 50 Years of the Fifth Estate", on view inside the Mobile Homestead at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), features a vast amount of groovy cover art, provocative editorial cartoons, archival photographs, paintings and memorabilia recalling the iconic events, people, and institutions that informed the newspaper during its earliest days through the present.

The exhibition at MOCAD will be complimented by an overview of the highlights of the Fifth Estate at the Detroit Historical Museum (DHM) on view August 29, 2015 through August 2016. "Start the Presses: 50 years of the Fifth Estate" is a text and graphics driven installation, focusing mainly on the colorful early history of the papers and its impact on Detroit and its media.

"You Can’t Print That: 50 Years of the Fifth Estate" is co-curated by Peter Werbe and Barbara Logan in association with MOCAD’s Curator of Education and Public Engagement, Amy Corle. Stop the Presses: 50 Years of the Fifth Estate is curated by founder Harvey Oshinksy, co-editor Peter Werbe and Tim Kiska, media critic and Associate Professor of Journalism, University of Michigan-Dearborn.
