This color art book highlights political art and ephemera, including zines, stickers, posters, and memes, and sheds light on archiving social movements. The book features interviews with 15 artists and activists, in areas including women’s liberation, disability rights, housing, antiwar, and indigenous issues. They offer insight on the material culture of social movements and provide alternative ideas of what archives can be, with special emphasis on digital archives. Some archives and collections discussed include the Swarthmore Peace Collection, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, the Lesbian Herstory Archive, the Next Epoch Seed Library, and the Sanctuary for Independent Media. The art program offers color illustrations on every page.
