We’re pleased to share that we’re collaborating with MoMA PS1 to mark the culmination of the 5th annual Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon. Past and Future Fictions brings together a number of projects and organizations whose mission involve the social justice-oriented preservation of information. If we accept the Derridean assertion that in the archive holds immense political power but that the term itself is so loosely defined, the joyous, carnivalesque space created with music, cotton candy, and anti-surveillance face painting will help trouble any feminist notion of the archive as concrete reality. These organizations will fill the VW Dome with the objects and actions associated with their specific archives for public engagement and production. During the day, the groups will be paired for short discussions covering elements practical, theoretical, and speculative of their work, teasing out what’s at stake in preserving histories of underrepresented subjects.

Participants include Black Lunch Table, Barnard Zine Library, Bluestockings, Radical Reference, NYC Trans Oral History Project, and Pilot Press
