The Let Us Speak Now Re/Vision archive project is an ongoing collaboration bet-ween Danish artists, Kirsten Dufour and Ninna Poulsen, Swedish artist, Cecilia Wendt, and Det 4. Kontor (Bonnie Fortune and Sophia Seitz-Rasmussen).
The project presents 15 new interviews with artists and cultural workers working in the Scandinavian context. Interviewees include: Rikke Andreasen, Uzma Ahmed Andresen, Mary Coble, Kajsa Dahlberg, Mathias Danbolt, Nynne Haugaard, Susan Hinnum, Jeuno JE Kim, Vibeke Mejlvang og Sofie Hesseholdt, Lisa Nyberg, Jane Rowley, Lise Skou, Gritt Uldall-Jessen, Louise Wolthers, and Pia Rönicke.
In their interviews, these ar-tists and cultural workers discuss issues ranging from intersectionality to integration; boredom as a source of political inspiration to politics as a source for creative inspiration; critical curation to critical media; and queer feminism to queering the archive.
In 2002, Dufour, a pioneer in the feminist art movement, began the Let Us Speak Now video archive on feminism, activism, and art production with Swedish artist, Andrea Cruetz.
The original project recorded interviews with artists from the USA, France, Armenia, Great Britain, Austria, South America, India, and elsewhere about their art practices and their opinions on feminism in contemporary cultural work. The project began in Los Angeles and has collected over 100 interviews with celebrated feminist artists and cultural workers, such as Faith Wilding, Mary Kelly, Julie Ault, Mary Beth Edelson, and Martha Rosler.
Though Dufour's project has collected so many interviews, there have been few with artists and cultural workers working local-ly. The Let Us Speak Now Re/Vision archive project seeks to add to the archive and update the discussion, by presenting the present feminist debate in the Nordic context.
Let Us Speak Now Re/Vision archive is an non-exhaustive archive and is continually being added to. Should you want to add your voice to the conversation please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
