Interference Archive is Growing! We could use your help!

Over the past six years, Interference Archive’s collection has grown thanks to almost 400 donations from individuals and groups who have shared what they’ve created or collected —boxes of books, bags of buttons, piles of t-shirts, and tubes of posters. Along with this growing archive of social movement culture, we’ve been putting on more events and a wider variety of exhibitions; our calendar showed twenty events in 2012, our first full year of operations, and in 2016 we wrapped up the year with over eighty. Our community has also grown—we have dozens of volunteers, our regular financial sustainer base has continued to increase, and the number of visitors from around the world that we meet during our open hours grows month over month.


For the May 2017 colloquium, Libraries and Archives in the Anthropocene, Interference Archive volunteers Nora Almeida and Jen Hoyer gave a talk and also put together a zine — the Anthropozine, obviously — of their annotated bibliography on reframing the ways we think about the anthropocene and the role of archives in this era.

Interference Archive featured on “Call & Response”

Interference Archive is featured in Episode 8 of Call & Response, a documentary web series focusing on political discourse with artists, intellectuals, writers, politicians, and everyday people. Interference volunteers Louise Barry and Amy Roberts spoke to Call & Response about our current exhibition, Finally Got the News, as well as the uses, meaning, and purpose of propaganda.

“What we’re doing with Kichwa Hatari is we’re activating people first, because the language won’t rescue itself. We have to rely on people to rescue a language.” -Charlie Uruchima
