Geographies of Counter Archiving, King’s College London


This is a closing event for the project Archiving Resistance. The project curated artefacts from two contemporary protests in India namely, the movement against Citizenship Amendment Act and National Register of Citizens, 2019 (across India) and Farmers Protests near Singhu border in Delhi against the Indian Agriculture Acts of 2020. It builds on oral historical accounts of the protesters and creates an autonomous archive of various forms of artefacts (posters, banners, badges, poetry and performances). In the closing event we showcase our project outputs while being in conversation with colleagues from other counter-archiving projects from across South Asia and beyond.
Speakers: Mukul Patel, Manu Luksch, Senel Wanniarachchi, Hana Morgenstern, Mahvish Ahmad
