Re:Activate Episode 3
The Activist as Archivist
RE:ACTIVATE is a project by Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee contributor Femke Dekker and focusses on the reciprocal relationship between media and activism and to disclose the strategies used to reinforce and exploit each-other’s mechanisms. Part of Open Archief - a multifaceted, collaborative research project that makes archival material accessible to artists for creative reuse - RE:ACTIVATE equally investigates the relation between archives and activism and will for the period of residency involve the archives of all three participating institutes. The archives affiliated with Open Archief are Het Nieuwe Instituut (HNI), The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (Sound and Vision), and the International Institute of Social History (IISH).
RE:ACTIVATE ‘The Activist as Archivist’ is an open dialogue with Els van Poppel, Katia Truijen and René Boer, discussing the context of activist media, squatting culture and the need for counterculture in urban environments that suffer from housing shortage and gentrification.
