Looking at the relationship between art, archives, and activism, this book captures one infamous decade, when social issues – feminism, environmentalism, LGBTQ2SIA+ rights, Indigenous rights, access to health services, and housing – began to coalesce into models of self-organisation and activism. Such movements overlapped with the production of art and culture, as displayed during a four-part exhibition at the Belkin Art Gallery. Both the 2019 exhibition and this accompanying book bring contemporary art practices into active dialogue with the past, interweaving archives with artwork, poetry, rather groovy prose, and critical investigation.
