Activations - Dislocated archive

18:0020:00 h
Venue: MACBA
Plaça dels Àngels, 1
08001 Barcelona
Price: Free event
Performance, Workshop, Guided tour

What are archives for? Which materials reflect dissident stories? How can we archive an ongoing struggle? What is the best way of classifying an archive? What consequences does it have on our deviated lives? When does the need to dislocate an archive arise? Could this be a way of subverting hegemonic narratives? How can we produce activations to raise corporal awareness? Can that which has been dislocated be categorised? Should it be done? What happens when, to avoid labels, we become invisible again? What happens when labels constrain us or force us to relive the stigma attached to felony or illness?
