Event Description

Posters from Interference Archive are meant to remind viewers of the long history of social movements led by and in support of women's rights, LGBTQ rights and the rights and safety of people of color. Social movements and the fight for justice, fairness and equality have been taking place for centuries of human history. In the U.S. the Civil Rights Movement of the sixties is often taught and discussed as the most defining series of actions and events towards social justice. Archives like Interference's show us that the struggle is multifaceted, ceaseless, and ever evolving. Movements often help us develop and employ the language that we use to describe our experiences and desires, that language is developed within the context of time, community and people, and that language changes to reflect the charging atmosphere and evolving contexts that it functions to serve.
