Barnard Library Lends Zines to Interference Archive

June 5, 2017

The Barnard Library has lent a number of zines from our circulating collection to our friends at the Brooklyn-based Interference Archive for their newest exhibition, "Take Back the Fight: Resisting Sexual Violence from the Ground Up." The exhibition is a collaboration with Lesbian Herstory Archives, and is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).

The exhibit contains archival materials and materials created by contemporary activists and artists that explore activism against, and resistance to, sexual violence. Information about some of the zines lent for the exhibit can be found in this blog post of zines in our collection that deal with topics of sexual assault and sexual violence. 

Interference Archive is a collectively-run, all-volunteer archive and organization that explores "the relationship between cultural production and social movements." Their physical events and archives space is located in Gowanus, Brooklyn.

"Take Back the Fight" is on view from June 1 to October 29, 2017, at Interference Archive's space at 131 8th Street No. 4, Brooklyn, NY. Open hours are Thursday from 1 to 9 pm and Friday, Saturday, Sunday from 12 to 5 pm. Information on group tours and accessibility is available on their website. Questions can be directed to info@interferencearchive.org.
