Welcome to Archive/Counterarchive

Archive/Counter-Archive is a project dedicated to researching and remediating audiovisual archives created by women, Indigenous Peoples, the LGBT2Q+ community, and immigrant communities. Political, resistant, and community-based, counter-archives disrupt conventional narratives and enrich our histories.
