experiments in (b)orderland commons: an archiving practice that visions and protects subversive and evasive relationalities as a meaningful context for communal imaginaries.
Gloria Anzaldúa - Fred Moten - Arielle Azoulay - Ika Willis - Adela Licona - Alison Piepmeier


“I work a lot with scraps of the archive. I work a lot with unknown persons, nameless figures, ensembles, collectives, multitudes, the chorus. That’s where my imagination of practice resides. That’s where my heart resides.”
- Sadiya Hartman, “On working with archives”


“The poor image thus constructs anonymous global networks just as it creates a shared history. It builds alliances as it travels, provokes translation or mistranslation, and creates new publics and debates.”
- Hito Steyerl, “In Defense of the Poor Image”
