A DIY Archive

A DIY Archive

Barcelona Contemporary Art Museum (MACBA). 27 Apr. - 10 Sep. 2019

‘A DIY Archive’ is an archive of publications by collectives, associations, self-managed feminist and/or queer groups around the relationship between music and drawing. It starts with the influence of the Riot Grrrl activist feminist movement that emerged in the nineties in Olympia (USA) and its translation here (a difficult ‘here’ to define, but one that embraces the places where it took place like Barcelona, Mexico city, Bilbao y Murcia). ‘A DIY Archive: a feminist-queer fanzinotheque’ (2016) is also a research project that took the form of a doctoral thesis by María Ángeles Alcántara Sánchez (Gelen Jeleton), who is both artists and curator of this exhibition.
