QUEERING THE ARCHIVE

Screening
Thu 16 Nov 2017
6–7.30pm
Recent Activity
80-82 Floodgate Street Birmingham
B5 5SR




Queering the Archive was a screening event that explored queer digital presence as a method of recording: highlighting current modes of digitisation, the potentials of the archive and the role of history in navigating of the closet.

A selection of films from Sandi Hughes’ Rewind Fast Forward - an archive of LGBTQ and BAME communities from Liverpool - casted a light on unread histories. The videos highlighted past queer experiences through the documentation of mundane occurrences – both positive and negative - and raised questions as to how these might relate to a contemporary audience. Hughes is in the process of digitising and uploading her archive to its own dedicated website.

The screening was followed by a panel discussion with Hughes, Laura Hudson and Tom Worsfold, whose solo exhibition Felt Tip formed the setting of the event.

This event was presented as part of SHOUT Festival of Queer Arts and Culture.
