The Interference Archive explores the relationship between cultural production and social movements. This work manifests in public exhibitions, a study center, talks, screenings, publications, workshops, and an on-line presence. The archive consists of many kinds of objects that are created as part of social movements: posters, flyers, publications, photographs, moving images, audio recordings, and other printed matter. Through our programming, we use this cultural ephemera to animate histories of people mobilizing for social transformation. You can search the collection at our space on Sundays 12-5pm, and Tuesdays 11am-4pm.
Todos Somos Japon is a NYC-based project of network building, of creating a current in and out of Japan, to support Japanese activists and movements and for a new association of the struggling people of the world.
