Opening December 5, 7-9pm

Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp was a 19-year anti-nuclear protest and encampment at the U.S. Military Base at Greenham Common, Berkshire County, England. This exhibition and event series, organized as a mother/daughter collaboration between Susan Jahoda and Emma Jahoda-Brown, assembles accounts of the comings and goings and daily lives of a diverse group of women at Greenham primarily over a nine year period. Photographs, film, artifacts and sound are brought together to reveal a complex view of a largely invisible history.

Self-Determination Inside/Out

September 11 – November 16, 2014

Opening: Thursday, September 11, 7-10pm

Interference Archive presents Self-Determination Inside/Out, a comprehensive exhibition and public program series featuring the cultural materials produced by incarcerated people and their allies. Ranging from the Attica Rebellion to political prisoners, AIDS education to prisoners-as-laborers, the struggles of incarcerated women and queer people to the current wave of hunger strikes in prisons and detention centers across the country, these materials fundamentally recast the history of the prison-industrial complex.

Film screening: Out in the Night

Saturday November 15, 2014
Screening & discussion 5 pm-7:30pm
Closing party to follow

Join director blair dorosh-walther and nd Terrain Dandridge, Patreese Johnson, and Renata Hill of the New Jersey 4 for a screening of Out in the Night.

Out in the Night is a documentary that tells the story of a group of young friends, African American lesbians from Newark, who were out one night in 2006, in the gay friendly West Village in New York City, when they were violently and sexually threatened by a man on the street. They defended themselves and were charged and convicted in the courts, and smeared by the media as a ‘Gang of Killer Lesbians’. Come hear how the NJ 4’s courage and resistance challenges the misogyny, racism, and homophobia of society and the (in)justice system, and sheds light on who is granted the right to self-defense.

Closing party for the exhibition Self-Determination Inside/Out to follow the screening!
