‘Take Back the Fight: Resisting Sexual Violence from the Ground Up’ (Through Sunday, October 29)

    Date: 06/01/2017 - 10/29/2017

    Time: All Day

    Location: Interference Archive (131 8th St., Brooklyn)

    Price: Free

    Archival materials in this exhibition are primarily drawn from the collections of the Interference Archive and Lesbian Herstory Archives. Taken as a whole, these documents reveal both the breadth of organizing against sexual violence and its fragmented, conflictual history, echoes of which continue to be felt in contemporary feminism. The exhibition makes visible some of the fault lines that developed between activists: the pornography debates of the “Sex Wars,” the limits of single-issue organizing, and conflicts and tensions around whether to work within state institutions or develop community-centered justice models.

    Archival materials will be complemented by materials created by contemporary artist/activists.
