March 11, 2014 marks the third year anniversary since the beginning of Fukushima Daiichi disaster.   There are actions happening all over the world to demand accountability from TEPCO and the Japanese government, and a call to end to nuclear power.

Two years ago, Interference Archive and Todos Somos Japon collaborated on an exhibition to show the creative resistance of people fighting against nuclear power called RadioActivity! Anti-nuclear Movements from Three Mile Island to Fukushima.  We explored the culture of anti-nuclear movements and how they have addressed a multitude of issues including feminism, anti-militarism, anti-capitalism, peace, alternative energy, environmentalism, and most important, everyday survival.

Here are some photos from the show of banners used in demonstrations.  Watch for them in the streets in the coming days.

Examining the Archive: a class lecture on activist posters

What makes art activist? What makes it political? Does who is using it matter? The Interference Archive is uniquely situated as both a living collection of activist cultures and ideas, and a site of popular education and engagement with these ideas. One way we integrate these facets is by offering lectures/tours/workshops to groups and classes. | More »

10 Covers, no. 4

Rebel Newsprint: Ten Covers

Guest blog by Sean Stewart

For my money, the underground press is the best window into the 1960s’ youth rebellion.

Opening tonight at Interference Archive, the exhibition Rebel Newsprint: The Underground Press features a wide range of over a hundred underground newspapers from my collection, and will include a handful of papers for people to flip through (no white gloves required); a full paste-up issue that perfectly illustrates the incredible amount of work that went into creating each issue; and a couple pieces of original art. I’ll also be giving away twenty-four copies of my book On the Ground: An Illustrated Anecdotal History of the Sixties’ Underground Press in the U.S. (PM Press, 2011).

Here are ten covers from the show that I’ve specially selected to share because of their convenient location at the top of the install pile.
