Researcher. Lisbon, Portugal

Marcos Farrajota has the punk in his eyes because he loves to watch the graphical aspects of punk fanzines and illustrations. He has the punk in his ears because he loves to listen to the Ramones, Mano Negra or Atari Teenage Riot. He has the punk in his hands because it’s an important and always present element of his comic strips. He has the punk in his head because he engages in several self-productions as the Chili Com Carne or the unpronounceable MMMNNNRRRG. And he’s considered the worst Portuguese designer, something he always remind us as a promotion tactic.

Researcher. Porto, Portugal

Graduated psychologist from the University of Porto who has always been interested in the study of deviant behavior and drug/alcohol consumption. With a close relationship to the punk scene, Teresa is not only interested in developing research about it, but also in integrating it, and actually listening to it, as a spectator. The long lasting interest in the consumption of psychoactive substances, as well as matters related to corporality – for instance, body modification – and deviant behavior, has led her into studying the punk scene through these insights.
