The dictionary definition of treatment is ‘the medical care given to a patient for an illness or injury’. Treatment is also the process by which certain materials are worked on to turn them into something else, such as the treatment of a metal or textile. Treat also means to behave towards or deal with someone in a certain way. In the field of medicine, complementary treatments are unrecognised (and often disparaged) substances or practices that fall outside the clinical sphere. In the context of Aids Anarchive, the term treatment captures the possibility of saying something through documents and materials and paying attention to possible “side effects”.

This study group was set up as a practical space to consider a series of crosscutting issues in the Aids Anarchive exhibition from complementary perspectives in dialogue with participants’ shared interests.
