SAQMI – THE SWEDISH ARCHIVE OF QUEER MOVING IMAGES

Berlin, June 28 2019, HKW – Haus der Kulturen der Welt
4-5.30 pm, Ausstellungshalle

An ongoing work with a new archive for queer moving images in Sweden. About the future of the archive, thoughts, ideas and working methods. How should we make these moving images visible in our own way? And how do we form a queer archive for moving images in Sweden today in the digital era? Thoughts on a new settlement and the work of queering an archive and not falling into old patterns and methods. Saqmi wants to be a co-determining archive where authors influence the development and design what the archive should be.

For the first time ever in Sweden The Swedish Archive for Queer Moving Images are compiling the history of queer moving images and storing it all in one place. A history that has been marginalized through oppression and self-censorship. Through methods such as documentation, interviews, archiving, screenings, presentations, workshops and discussions, the first platform of queer moving images in Sweden will be created.
