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?

The archive features materials generously made available by the following documentation centres, collectives and individuals: Ca la Dona, Casal Lambda, Álex Brahim, La Fanzinoteca, ACATHI and ¿Archivo Queer?, among others.

The project is coordinated by Lucía Egaña Rojas in collaboration with students from MACBA’s Independent Study Programme (Julieta Obiols, Vatiu Nicolás Koralsky, Benzo, Diego Posada, Héctor Acuña, Juan David Galindo, Lina Sánchez, Lior Zisman Zalis, Javiera Pizarro, Itxaso Corral, Isamit Morales, Alexander Arilla) and Camila González S.

To reconstruct the disorder of a possible city. To use the model, not as an element in a project, but as the representation of something that already exists.
