Special Hours: Open for MLK Day (Monday 12-5 PM)

We will be open this Monday for MLK Day. While we are open, we will be showing a mixture of video (documentaries, news footage, activist media, etc.), along with audio in connection to Black Lives Matter, Moms 4 Housing, Say Her Name, and related social movements connected to civil rights, anti-racist, and intersecting concerns.

Come by anytime between 12-5 PM to see media promoting liberatory social movements. If there are any videos that you want to see, come to Interference Archive to request it (radical participatory culture in action.) The space will be open for access to all the archival material and regular usage.

Building for Us: Stories of Homesteading and Cooperative Housing

Exhibition Opening: October 17, 2019, 7-9pm
Exhibition Dates: October 17, 2019 to February 2, 2020

In the early 1970s, government disinvestment in New York City, coupled with widespread landlord abandonment, gave rise to squatting, urban homesteading, and other forms of self-help housing. The Urban Homesteading Assistance Board (UHAB) grew out of the self-help housing movement. This exhibition features the people who fought to turn vacant or neglected buildings into vibrant co-ops, illuminating the origins of New York City’s affordable housing cooperatives.
