Women, Act, Make, Archive, Reset

  • Cinema, CCA Glasgow 350 Sauchiehall Street Glasgow, Scotland, G2 3JD United Kingdom (map)

In this panel discussion – which takes place a hundred years on since women’s radical postcards, placards, badges and agitprop feminist art actions helped secure the vote for women – Cultural and Art Historian Sarah Lowndes, Glasgow Women’s Library Co-founder Adele Patrick, and Zine and Campaign Archivist Elizabeth O’Brien will be sharing their thinking about the links between (zine) art, activism, and archiving the revolutionary.

The panel will be exploring the gender politics of ‘weeding’ in collecting, what makes it into information institutions, what is missing from the records of countercultural art making, and how radical museums and archives can inspire and conserve the work of generations of zine makers. This session will also ask – who is missing from zine world? Whose work needs to be prioritised, collected, and why? And how can ‘zines in the archive’ remain live and inspiring?
