Archiving Activism in the Digital Age

Edited by Daniele Salerno and Ann Rigney

"The archiving of social movements has long contributed to their cultural impact. Given the wide availability of digital tools for the making and storing of records, ‘autonomous’ archiving is today becoming a significant part of the activist toolkit itself. In parallel, professional archiving has undergone significant change, leading to more participatory and community-based practices that belie the idea of ‘the Archive’ as an institution merely serving the interests of the state.

This collection brings together academics, archivists, and activists to explore some of the many new sites where activist archives are being produced at the present time. With case studies ranging between Turkey, Afghanistan, the UK, Spain, the Netherlands, and the US, it offers new insights into the opportunities and challenges posed by digitization as well as into the tensions between autonomy and long-term sustainability. It shows above all the potential of archives to become sites of renewed critical engagement."

Promiscuous Infrastructures: Practicing Care

Edited by Michelle Teran, Marc Herbst, Vivian Sky Rehberg, Renée Turner and The Promiscuous Care Study Group

"Promiscuous Infrastructures brings together more than twenty contributors—art and social practitioners, researchers, and educators—who have been researching and writing about caring infrastructures and promiscuous care for the past several years. This interdisciplinary publication comprises essays, visual schematics and scores, personal letters, recipes, and conversations, which emerge from the work of the Promiscuous Care Study Group, situated around the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam.

Promiscuous Infrastructures calls for an ethics of care and attentiveness to one another within and beyond the shared context of a structurally dispassionate institution that requires innovation, expediency, and accountable results. The promiscuity it explores is defined by a collective refusal of efficiency, and favors generosity, care, love, and attention. Together, the group and their interlocutors address themes ranging from institutional change, communal responsibility and accountability practices, mental health and collective care, hospitality and hosting, soil, counter-histories, intergenerational learning, joy and collective grief and the poetics of imagining otherwise."

(Home Works) - A Cooking Book: Recipes for Organising with Art and Domestic Work

Edited by Jenny Richards and Jens Strandberg

"Home Works – A Cooking Book: Recipes for Organising with Art and Domestic Work expands on cooking with art and food as a process for coming together and building collectivity. The book highlights the art and politics of eating together through a number of artistic, curatorial and tasty dinner recipes. Recipes that nourish and nurture conversations around domestic labour, collaborative practices and feminist politics, expanded upon through a series of essays and interviews.

The recipes were learnt during the cooking of Home Works; a research and exhibition programme investigating domestic labour and the politics of the home, hosted by the art space Konsthall C in Stockholm 2015-2017.

Home Works – A Cooking Book is a tool for everyone that wants to use art to challenge what work we value and how work is organised.

Without further ado...let’s cook!"

Tools for Radical Study: A Collection of Manuals

edited by KUNCI Study Forum & Collective

"For Tools for Radical Study: A Collection of Manuals, KUNCI have invited education practitioners from diverse learning spaces to share their tools, which have been developed through collective learning practices. At least for those who reside amid the proliferation of collective practices in the Global South, talking about and sharing tools means talking about and performing the redistribution of power – a power that is most likely derived through the process of knowledge accumulation. Talking about tools also means talking about things one finds in places like public kitchens, village meeting halls, slaughterhouses, and residential gardens – places where theory and its methods are rarely found, whether on the ground or in quotidian conversation.

Building on their educational initiative the School of Improper Education, KUNCI uses cross-referencing as a framework to provide a grounded understanding of local study contexts while also engaging in the mobility and connection of people, ideas, tools, and institutions that, in turn, multiply the frame of references in each implicated study practice. Inhabiting the space of sharing and collectivity, this multiplication creates a commons-based production of knowledge rather than a centralized accumulation of intellectual property. All contributors to this publication offer alternative forms of studying that are fundamentally practiced as a mode of sharing and nurturing alternative publics or counterpublics."

Contributors include Al Maeishah, Fawaz, Feminist Search Tools, Sanchayan Ghosh, Moelyono, S. Soedjojono and Sindhusiswara, Sima Ting Kuan Wu, and Chen Yun.

KUNCI Study Forum & Collective experiments with methods of producing and sharing knowledge through acts of studying together at the intersections between affective, manual, and intellectual labor. Since its founding in 1999 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, KUNCI has been continuously transforming its structure, ways, and medium of working."
