inter:archive is an ongoing and experimental project dedicated to the various facets of intersectionality with a focus on (but not restricted to) Zurich-based research and artistic practices. 

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the initial manifestation of inter:archive was constrained to suspension. As part of zürich moves 2020’s official programme the project intended to take place as a temporary and «particip-active» library with live performances on the theme of intersectionality at the OnCurating Project Space from 4 April to 3 May 2020. 

Though we are still trying to understand what it is like to return to the physical space, we have decided to reopen the OnCurating Project Space in July with a different format of inter:archive. The space now presents itself as an office for reading and research. Sources presented in the space are from personal collection to a selection of books from the VOLUMES Archive – one of our main partners since the beginning of the project. In this new physical setting and temporary workplace, we aim to continue researching material for the project, as well as sharing it collectively with the public through visits, readings and conversations.

Since its online launch in April 2020, inter:archive navigates through the multiple facets of intersectionality by sharing content ranging from images, quotes, poems, zines to soundpiece, mixtapes, videos and more. The idea is not to be exhaustive but rather to create a collective opportunity to share fragments of references and works, in which the topics of gender, race, sexuality, class, ethnicity and disability intersect. In an endeavour of conscious-raising and care, we want to shed light on the multiple injustices, differences and discriminations that are still overtly present in our contemporary society.

In collaboration with artists Josephine Baan, Amos Cappuccio, Tina Reden, Romy Rüegger, Paloma Ayala, curator Adriana Dominguez, stage designer Elisabeth Fritsch, the ZHdK Bibliothek, and VOLUMES, the inter:archive project has questioned the standard library constellation and categorisation by imagining and assembling a miscellany of intersectional feminism sources in an uncanny and participative way. 

inter:archive is a project developed by curators Giovanna Bragaglia, Miwa Negoro and Camille Regli, as part of the OnCurating Project Space’s programme. Supported by Fluxum Foundation.
