Arnolfini’s summer programme Moving Targets will mark the 40th anniversary of punk with a fiesta of events that ’embrace the unstable, the volatile and the unpredictable’.
Materials from the Feminist Archive South is displayed in the gallery alongside other ephemera related to the history of punk in Bristol and beyond.
I am really looking forward to taking part in the Archiving Subcultures discussion on Saturday 27 Aug, 2-5pm.
Always Expanding and Never Closed will explore why, how and if we should archive the histories of subcultures and social movements.
I will be presenting new work from The Meta-Data Diaries (see example below), a project that tells grassroots feminist histories as a series of excessive and obsessive meta-data entries.
‘Meta-Data Diaries: Part I’ will be published next year in Communicating the Archive: Inscription edited by Karl-Magnus Johansson.
This book will feature other archive-tech luminaries such as Lori Emerson, Amalia Ulman, Che Gossett, Yuk Hui, Jenna Sutela, Monira al Qadiri, Akram Zaatari, Martin Kohout, Martine Syms, Anne de Vries, Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings. I’m really delighted to be part of it!
Also on Sat 27 Aug is a gig featuring bellies! ILL and Ravioli Me Away.
Doors open at 8pm and you can buy tickets here.
